Protect your outdoor plants
Plants not tolerating temperatures below 10°C should be taken to a sheltered location in September/October. Hibiscus and milkweed, for instance, start to lose their leaves when temperatures drop below 10 °C.
Light and cool or dark and cool?
You should keep one basic rule in mind when it comes to getting potted plants successfully through the winter: Everything without foliage, like fuchsia, angel’s trumpet or lantana, can be kept cool and in the dark during storage. As desert plants, agave plants can also be put in a dark place, however, they need at least some light. Prickly or spiny pot plants don’t require any further care in the winter. It is different with plants that aren’t defoliated like oleanders, passion flowers, geraniums, hibiscuses or bush violets. They need a light and cool place and should be regularly checked for bugs.
