temperature winter tis year -19 degrees celcius
I thought that the Western Europe climate was much warmer in the winter thanks to the warm Gulf Stream. How could you have had -19°C? Is it really so? Wet winter or snowy winter?

Citruses take sometimes decades to start fruiting. Is it still so long?

Container for Cavendish types, free soil for the hardier (basjoo, Orinoco, sikkimensis...)

overwintering inside.the rest of the seazon outside
It depends, some flower earlier (Cavendishes), because I have them in the warm place for winter, some fruit later (basjoos in the soil...)
One more thing, it's Slovak, not Slovakian. ...
Slovak climate would be:
Winter lowest 2009 >>> -13°C (about 1 night,then it gradually fell to -1°C)
Summer highest 2008 >>> 34,5°C
Thnx to Marcel, Ante, Dr. Chiranjit Parmar and Francesco for the plants I've received.
