Finally finished the cold frame  Glad I waited till today.  It didn't take much but I was a wee bitty frustrated yesterday

Also went on a dandylion binge and yanked out some of the biggest ones I've seen!  And about time too

Hi all

This is my penstemon.  I have never cut it - the question is should I chop it?  If so, how and when?  I guess I expected it to die back and regrow but it never has

Many thanks

I would also not tie them up to make them look neat as this will impact their ability to get the nutrients required for flowers next year

Morning all 

Surprise! I'm up and awake 

Didn't sleep well last night either Dove, I was very warm too. We didn't change our summer duvet this winter so sadly I have no cooler duvet options 

Have a lovely day all

I am a little grumpy. Two of my sticky labelled plants are tender so I thought I would make my cold frame to put them in.  One of the props for the "windows" didn't go the right way so I had to shave some of it off to fix the issue.  Then I have to "guess" where to put them on the windows as it wasn't marked.  I thought I had double checked that I had them in the right place and attached them with the screws.  Went to attach the windows with the hinges to discover I am going to have to take them off and reattach  It is my fault, but want to blame the company for not giving details of where exactly to put them
