Hi Jazz:
I had the same question!
It's going to be really nice here today too, and I am going to bring up my Brugs and put them into my new little greenhouse for the day, but I am wondering if I could now leave them in the greenhouse at night too.

My tommytoe plants are also coming up into the greenhouse today, and I'm going to leave them there until I plant them.

What I've read about Brugs, is that they need 15 C at night (at least) before they go out.

Last fall mine were outside still when it went close to zero, tho...and when they came indoors they bloomed like mad.

I don't think I will see 15 C at night for awhile yet.

I have had my small one outside for a few weeks now, bringing it indoors for a few days during that cold spell we had. Our night temps have been around 5 C. But one night it did go down around 0 and we got frost. The leaves that did get damaged are already growing back again. I would be keeping my bigger ones out too if they weren't so heavy and awkward to move in and out if the temps do really dip down again.

I think if they are placed close to the west side of the house they should be okay, so I'm thinking of getting it done with and put them out.

Thanks Patty, I've been debating with the Dats. It's still a bit too cold at night yet but I've had them out until well into the evening and it's down around 6 or 7C so I figure another week and they'll be good to go out.

ohhh...I throw mine out daily...leave them if it is over five over night...and bring it in when it is not...already just about to burst into bloom. I find it likes to be outdoors more than in as long as it is not damp cold and windy.

I took my 5 plants outside on monday. It didnt go below 0 but it was sunny. Tried to hide them a bit from the sun all week to hardy them off. But this am sunny. So leaves are a bit dying. i know they grow back fast. Just want to be reassured that I am doing the right thing.

Dont tell me to bring them back in much too heavy. Thanks. Jazz
