Perennials in 9cm pots

Nemorosas are hardy too, but while they are babies in pots I'd still put them in the cold frame. They should look lovely, even better the year after.

Donald or hillary?

Well said RB.

They may have come from an F1 hybrid plant which doesn't always grow true to type.

Mine stay in the ground too, until spring - that's if we haven't eaten them all by then. Any left then I freeze.

They look like a yellow variety which is ripe. Have you tried eating one?

Here is my aubretia in April last year. I planted some little plants in a bed on the edge of the terrace a few years ago and it's seeded itself around the flower pots and in cracks in the terrace. I didn't plant any of the plants now on the terrace! I love plants that give you a bonus like that.

Good luck with your hand.


I'm happy to look out in winter and see plants wrapped in fleece, gives me a feeling of satisfaction knowing I've done what I can to help them survive the winter.

I would pot them into bigger pots and put them in the cold frame. Heleniums should be hardy. Salvias - depends on variety.

Good advice from pansyface. It will be better protected once planted and will get off to a better start in the spring.


By the way, pansyface types in capitals because of an eyesight problem, she's not shouting.

Well, he won but.....

I just hope that Trump has some good people on his staff to keep things going.
