    Wilt as it go limp or dry and crinkly? Sounds like too much direct sun to me but could also be lack of water. Any chance of a piccie?

    Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.

    Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

    make sure you dont water the leaves as this will increase heat loss!

    If they are recovering when taken back inside it seems it is a temperature problem.
    I have mine in an unheated green house and they are fine but I will not put them out side for another week or two when less chance of frost at night

    seems to be a problem with direct sun rather than cool temperature
