The Ensette is surviving well outside, but I think it will benefit from being brought inside. The front door entrance is packed at the mo as I have not had time to sort the plants I have brought inside.

Sorry everyone, been enjoying myself on the river too much. Gardening has taken a back seat until today when a frost is expected and I must bring inside all my big plants. Luckily my friend Franc was here early and help me get them down from the roof and other places. I am still leaving outside some of the hardier ones like th tree fern and cestrum and a few others. The front garden is now looking a bit bare. The Iochroma was the largest to be brought inside and had to be bent over inside the back. I am now running out of space at the back to store plants. The Yucca is still wanting to flower, but I think the frost will get it before it can flower. I just noticed it was covered in blackflies, must spray. The Oxalis on the front gate is still holding its own. I think I will bring these inside this year and see if they do better next year. The front garden is now looking a little bare, but there are still some life in the plants left. After bringing the plants inside the clearing up is next.
