wollemi survival in a cold European winter

Posted on behalf of Dara Wyer by Mark Taylor

Just to let you know that I have a wollemi in county Dublin. It is in a large pot and has survived very well through a sustained cold snap lasting over three weeks with temperatures going as low as -12 C. One thing I did notice was that it seemed to shed some branches- two of them came off as soon as I brushed past them. This may be a survival thing or the plant may be stressed- hope this is of interest.
