    • F.arborescens can supposedly take short spells down to -5C but that’s really its limit. If it’s soggy at the roots, it probably won’t take much below 0C to kill it. I used to treat it as tender – keep it in a container and move into the greenhouse at 5C+ for the winter. But there’s so much competition for greenhouse (and summer container) space that I no longer bother.

  1. Will miss you but do enjoy your hibernation. The Fuchsia cutting you gave me is now 2 feet tall and has some buds, a lovely photo of what I have to look forward to. xx

  2. Enjoy your hibernation in your badger sett. If we are going all Wind in the Willows, I’d prefer Mole’s ‘cosy quarters’. But I think I will wait until January for my hibernation although November is my second least favourite month. Anyway, I can’t hibernate just yet because I still haven’t finished planting my bulbs.
    I love the fuchsia is it hardy?
    Come back soon, missing you already.
