I thought I'd open a thread on how my plants progressed (or not) over the winter.
A pot of three plants, these were first plants to germinate plus an imported individual, that explains the size. These are in a 14" pot with electric slug barrier. This is fairly low down in the aisle of the top lean-to greenhouse so I've simply taped on a sheet of aluminium foil behind it to reflect some light. For the next couple of months it will not receive any direct sun.
The next are two 12" pots with three plants in each. The difference in size of the plants is due to when they germinated. These are on the outer (lighter) bench. Again these will receive no direct sunlight over the next couple of months, their situation is lighter than the above though.
The minimum temperature so far on all the above is 1.8C on Monday night 28/29.11.16
Outside in an open growtent I have 4 x 10" pots. These have been subjected to subzero temperatures already. Monday night I couldn't record but I set up a max/min thermometer and recorded a temperature of 0C on Tuesday night 29/30.11.16. As this was a warmer night than Monday, as evidenced by the record inside the greenhouses, this gives the subzero figure to Monday. These are placed higher than all the previous pots but still unlikely for them to receive any direct sun for a couple of months. I've just taken shots of two of these.
A note for size on the above photo. The 'stumps' where the tree has been cut down to at the bottom of the photo are still the same height as the house roof. He still has another 20ft to cut off to get down to them
