Too cold for bottle trees, Stego and me

Six months ago I planted two bottle tree seedlings in a small pot, aiming to create a bonsai effect. While living in outback Queensland they thrived; however, since relocating to Phillip Island they've barely survived.

This past summer has been too cold for bottle trees; too cold for me too. Stego my stumpy-tailed lizard agrees. Only venturing out of his grass nest several times, and not eating much at all, he'll be pleased to return to Queensland in April.
