Well, the experts say it will be so very cold so it must be true.  And a siberian swan (or similar) has ventured our way so another crucial sign of a bad winter to come.

the experts now say our winters will be COLDER.  They said warmer a couple of years back.  Remember, we will all be able to grow more tender plants, they said.  But if our winters will be colder how does that work?    It's all climate change this hotter, er colder, er wetter!  

The truth is the winter will be about what happens.  It cannot be foretold

They will die pottering Girl if left outside.

can you cloche them and have some fleece handy too.  Cut them back and keep on kitchen windowsill maybe? 

here in west Cornwall they usually do survive the winter outside but all it needs is one sharp frost to kill them
