Question from a Newbie

drvongirlApril 18, 2010

Hi everyone, I have 3 brugs now that I got from Country Gardens... Serendipity, georgia peach, and dr seuss. I want to know if I can leave them outside overnight now. And what is the lowest degree above 32 that I can? I am getting tired of dragging the pots in and out and also I am worried about bugs getting to them, I guess there is no way to avoid that, but should I be spraying them with something? I have one noid that I have been putting out and it seems like every time I do i get a hole or something in one of the leaves. Am I worrying too much?Thanks in advance, Ellen

Hi Ellen! Welcome! As far as putting your brugs out, the leaves will get damaged from the sun anyway. So you can strip your plants of leaves. I know, sounds drastic, but the leaves will grow in acclimated to the sun. As long as you don't get freezing temps, they should be OK outside. I have some of mine out and we've been close to freezing a few times.

I'm in 7a and mine have been outside for a couple weeks. We've dipped into the upper 30's a couple times with minimal, if any damage. I think you'll be fine and like Theresa said acclimating them to natural sunlight will scorch the foliage anyway.
