Best not to put them out (or rather best to bring them in) if there is frost, as the new growth is sensitive to cold

They will be happier being outside (better light, and air), just not on cold nights :)

Mine are outside all the time covered with their old leaves but they are older. Buy chicken pellets and use a handful when planting your gunnera=works a treat!


A word of caution with chicken pellets ,I lost three fair sized gunnera for no apparent reason,the only common factor was chicken pellets that I used to use.This is just my own experience ,something to bear in mind,the plants were not small ,all over 10 years old.
