    I overwintered a number of them last year.  Some I just cut back and left in the pot in the garden.  One out of two overwintered this way.  The rest I put into a cold greenhouse after cutting back and all of those survived and are looking lovely this year.

    I have to confess to not clearing out my hanging baskets last year and when I finally got round to it a few weeks back I found a little nemesia just coming into flower.
    The compost was bone dry and had been hanging on a north-facing wall since last spring.
    I've potted it up and now looking really good.

    @Yviestevie, l resurrected this thread as l saw your comments about overwintering nemesias on another thread. 
    I was just wondering, l assume that you keep them on the dry side, and l could throw some fleece over them if it gets really cold?

    Looks like I have overwintered them before. My memory must be going 🤣
