Transplant brachychiton acerifolius into the garden
I would like to transplant this brachychiton acerifolius,grown from seed into the garden although I have very little space left. It seems to survive southern England temperatures of no more than -3 to -5c in winter in its present state - sometimes covered
I grew this tree from a seed picked up in a street in South Africa 6 years ago and am very keen to keep this tree going. Here in southern England temperatures rarely get to below about -5C. in winter. Until this year I have wheeled it into the front south facing garden for the summer, but for the last year it's remained at the back of the house as per picture. I have no greenhouse or shed suitable to winter it in. Would it be safe to transplant it into the garden and would I ever get it to flower?
