No, I just stuck it through the bedroom window and slapped everything on auto. The colour lasted 15 seconds at the most. The leaves had already gone off the tree, late last year.

Need plant I-D please.

Once they're up they're pretty hardy. Mine will move from a frost free greenhouse to the unheated plastic polytunnel thing. They were fine last year doing that. If we have a really cold snap, cover with a bit of fleece as extra insulation.
