I have A Brugmansia which my mum bought at Tatton Park Show in 2012. It was a 3' standard but after over-wintering it in the shed it died back to about 4" above soil level. During 2013 it produced 3 or 4 new shoots and flowered like mad, although some of the leaves turned yellow and fell off on a regular basis. Last winter I kept it in my utility, which has no heat and a perpex roof. It kept many leaves and went back outside in April. It has about 8 flowers at the moment and still some of the leaves are yellow, not sure why but think it will be due to lack of nourishment,as it needs repotting, another job on the list!. Its not as attractive as when it was a standard but I plan to take cuttings this year and train the as standards (fingers crossed). I live in the SW Cumbria so the weather isn't too harsh here if a little wet at times.
