Protecting Tender plants over winter.

Echeveria peacockii is a non-hardy succulent so is brought in under glass for the winter to protect it from potential frost but mostly from heavy rain in Scotland to stop the plant rotting.
Lifted from display beds & packed in closely into fishing containers to be stored in the glasshouse.
