Oleanders in the yard
Not only does it look like winter, it has really been winter for a few days. The temperature has also dipped down as far as -15 C (5 F). The plastic-sheeting house against the wall is not heated additionally; the sheltered location should be sufficient.
It’s December 8th.

The oleanders next to the wall have been wrapped up; the small heat lamp is on within.
Oleanders planted out in the open field
During the first burst of intense cold the previous year, these oleanders incurred major damage – will we have success this year? We have more insulation this year as well as the convector; but still, it’s -15 c (5 F).
