I went outside to wash the sheets I use to cover my plants on cold
nights and the ones that had been sitting outside in the rain were
frozen! It's 37 here now and depending on what channel you watch, we
should get down to 28-32 (although being closer to the city we usually
stay a few degrees warmer).
So I brought everything in, but my mandevilla is wound up through the
lattice, only way to bring him in is to trim him down.
I'm guessing that at this temp, the frozen sheets and the fact that the
soil is fully saturated, I should just bite the bullet and bring him in?
I'm so upset, he bloomed *so*
late this year. :(
I've been overwintering him for 4 or so years and would hate to lose him
