Preparing Greenhouse for overwintering (Winterizing for American viewers) Cacti and Succulents

With the overnight temperatures starting to drop now that autumn (fall for our American viewers) is upon us we need to make sure that we have all of our cacti and succulents in the right place moving forward for winter. A good part of our cacti and succulent collection will overwinter or winterize in the unheated greenhouse but that is because the ones which weren't capable of surviving the freezing temperatures died out a few years back when I decided I didn't want them in the house (Lorna doesn't know that and is very unlikely to read this either)! 

However, we are thinking about putting them into next year's show against the local chapter of the The British Cactus & Succulent Society (BCSS) so I am going to have to put the work in this year to make sure that that at least some of our plants are of show quality, and that means sorting out the greenhouse and bringing the tender specimens inside for protection. 

So why not follow us on our journey as we campaign to kick the BCSS in the backside and take their trophy's? To make sure you are notified of future video consider clicking on to the 'SUBSCRIBE' button. It is absolutely free and helps to support out YouTube Channel.
