I too love putting my tender succulents out for the summer - gives an exotic feel to the garden even if the weather is cloudy like now. A friend gave me an echivaria called "Blue Frills" last year which is spectacular when it sends out its lovely pink flowers. last year i experimented by leaving some of my graptopetalum plants in a sheltered spot in the garden all winter and they survived, except the slugs and snails thought them a great feast. just checking on global warming plantwise!
