over wintering perrenials in pots

Posted: 25/08/2015 at 15:50

I would tip each one out of it's pot and see if it has masses of roots; in which case, plant on to a pot 2 to 4 cm larger. If the root system does not seem cramped, leave well alone unless the pots are very small. I'm assuming the geranium is the hardy type, not a pelagonium.

My 2 half standards in big pots get watered heavily twice a week as they face south. I dead head them also. I agree with Dave Morgan, give them some TLC

Had first sweetcorn yesterday; I'm in Norfolk and I think they need a few more days on the plant.

Cathy, I agree; it is stupid NOT to ask a question when we are surrounded by people with experience and knowledge.

I do hope Mowerman has not been put off the forum.
