Hi, l lost my Bottle brush to winter snow, then bought a new bigger plant, only to find that dead this last winter. How do l protect it in witer plz?

Most bottle brush plants are not winter-hardy in the UK and need to be over-wintered in a frost-free conservatory or heated greenhouse.  Sometimes people are lucky and manage to get them through the winter by wrapping them in fleece, but a particularly hard winter will sometimes get them even then.
