Harsh Winter

in the UK. Same as always, I always say.

South-west England’s usually-mild climate allows Mediterranean and southern hemisphere plants to grow.

But after the coldest January in Devon and Cornwall for more than a decade…  At the sub-tropical Glendurgan gardens, near Falmouth, a third of the plants have been lost or damaged. Succulents… were worst hit.

Well then, maybe they should be growing more of the cold hardy succulents like sempervivums and delospermas and fewer of the aloes and aeoniums. Did they ever think of that?

That was pretty rude of me. I apologize to all who were offended. And if you weren’t offended, then what were you thinking!?!
