    Looks like the first of December for us here. We've been down to 6 degrees a few times lately.

    It says we'll be ok until Christmas down here in the south east corner, but I'm not sure I'll trust that :worried:.... :smt009

    Ta Pac :)

    That's just the more tender ones I've built an insulated section in the cactus house for. The rest of them will have to take their chances with the frost...

    I could do with a bed in your cactus house as it's really cold and windy here. :smt090I think the forecast for when we've to get our first frost is wrong as I predict it will be much sooner than the 1st of December.

    Well my prediction was spot on as we've had our first frost already. Thankfully we're back to rain now so it's a little warmer.
