For many years I have had a frontage of daffodils alongside the road.  They have always made a lovely show but the last couple of years dwindled I tried feeding them after flowering but this year hardly any bloomed.  Is it time to dig them up and replace them.

stepover trees

William pears saw some at Bonython Gardens locally the fruit on them was incredible large juicy pears and plenty of them used as hedging round vegetable beds. The trees were only a couple of years old.

Many thanks Verdun and Philippa smith 2  you have reassured me to be brave and leave it out I will cover it if we are unlucky enough to have a very severe winter.

Have a citrus plant for about 5 years potted.  Each year I stand it outside where it always does really well as soon as I bring it into the porch or cold greenhouse at this time of year the leaves and fruits start dropping.  I brought it in a couple of weeks ago and the leaves started yellowing so I put it outside again.  Has anybody had same problems.  I am very tempted to leave it outside and cover with fleece when the temperature really drops. Being in Corn wall we don't usually get much frost. Have about 12 really good fruits on it at present.
