they are not generally fast growing, mine are in the ground and grow about 1-2" a year, they get faster as they get older!

I've grown them for two years running and they were around 3ft high, great long lasting flowers but mind the spikes!

A couple of peacock butterflies are overwintering in my friends house, she is feeding them honey, is there a better food to be feeding them to give them the best chance of survival until spring?

Can't get no inspiration!

Is it land you want to cover and not have to do much to?  It's not clear from the photo if the view is something you want to see or something you want to disguise!

rose bush care over winter

If you've not pruned a rose before, it might be a good idea to look up how to do it on a website first.  You need to prune dead or diseased stems first, then to outward facing buds to the centre of the bush stays fairly clear, it helps prevent diseases.

Thanks everyone, I've got a sick looking heuchera I'll pot it up and it might pick up.  I never have much luck with hyacinths the blooms always fall over.

Hi does anyone have any plant ideas for winter pots?  preferably not pansies as I've loads already  thanks

The best way of keeping them at bay, that I've found, is to net the plants as soon as

you plant them.  However you could still do it now, remove all the caterpillars and eggs that you find and cover your plants with netting.  I use sticks bent over like a hoop and then tie the netting over that and weigh the ends down with stones.  You can buy kits from garden centres.  If not totally decimated cabages usually revive.  I have to do mine today as I didn't take my own advice!

Good luck and don't give up!
