Next time I will put things in my trolley, have a cuppa and message on here to ask the experts. We need a thread about decent GC's for winter plants. Most GC's are sparse at the mo, depressing!!!!

Just got a queen of hearts for 4.99, the lady is charging 10 when they are all in full flow in March. It's 4 or 5 years old minimum and has lots of flower buds. They have doubles too but mixed so will have to wait and look at their colour when they come out. 

 

So is this a cut doen job or plant and leave. The lady selling was clueless so thought I would ask the professionals!!!!

I had some in ready for xmas and the tops frosted and went mushy as it's unheated so no doubt it. I will probably start some in buckets or tubs in my conservatory in late feb early march.

Kef do you use old compost, new, soil???? I'm limited for space And grew one tuber in a builders black bucket. It provided a meal for 2 Per bucket, would have liked more but  suppose a bucket is small!! Unless I start in bottom bucket and when they show, cut bottom out of second bucket and then fill this so in essence earthing up. Would this work/get bigger yields??
