Many thanks Verdun and Philippa smith 2  you have reassured me to be brave and leave it out I will cover it if we are unlucky enough to have a very severe winter.

Have a citrus plant for about 5 years potted.  Each year I stand it outside where it always does really well as soon as I bring it into the porch or cold greenhouse at this time of year the leaves and fruits start dropping.  I brought it in a couple of weeks ago and the leaves started yellowing so I put it outside again.  Has anybody had same problems.  I am very tempted to leave it outside and cover with fleece when the temperature really drops. Being in Corn wall we don't usually get much frost. Have about 12 really good fruits on it at present.

Everybody in the country seems to have had some rain it has missed us down here at the bottom of Cornwall we havnt had any for weeks and weeks poor garden is so dry - water runner beans every day to keep them going but not the same as rain. I suppose we are never satisfied !!!!!!!

Love them so much I even chop them up cold with cold new potatoes and mayonnaise in salads.  Good crop this year in spite of drought conditions.
