Aeonium 'Zwartkop':- over-wintering.

Posted: Today at 06:57

I overwinter mine in a cold GH - maybe indoors is too warm?

mine has been fine the last two mild winters, but dropped all its leaves and looked sad in the cold one the year before.  However it grew new leaves the next spring, and is now going from strength to strength, so all is not lost yet - although the rotting doesn't sound good.  Is there anywhere outside you could keep it?

Anyone for squirrel crumble?

They pinch our apples and pears too, so sympathy Bob.  We are hoping our trees will soon be so prolific there will be enough for all  And in the meantime, hanging nets of carbolic soap in the trees seems to have helped - apparently they don't like the smell

I have a few and have noticed the ones with red flowers have the best autumn colour - not sure what flowers Harry has?.  Diana is a good one for red flowers.  Pallida has big yellow flowers, but the leaves just go yellow in the autumn, as opposed to red and orange like the others - hope this helps
