That's encouraging.


My J. Polyanthum survived the winter outside the kitchen wall in a pot. It's twined itself all over the grill on the larder window. But it was a mild winter. Think I may re-pot it and leave it there as it's got too big to bring in.

I thought "Wild Swans" was a great book, really interesting. There are parts of the world I know nothing about. I enjoyed "City of Joy" and "Geisha" too.

I agree with Doghouse and Obelixx about Tameka. But I find Judge Rinder very irritating.

Glad you enjoyed your day Dove. Look forward to the pictures. I haven't seen Bressingham this late in the year.


I've cut down some finished perennials, lots more to do.


Doing sea bass with homegrown veg from the freezer, incl. broad beans, love them.

Small £1.49 perennials

I agree with Verdun. I've lost small plants in the past because of cold and/or wet winters, slugs and snails or the cat digging them up. Re-pot them and put them somewhere safe like a cold frame. They won't need much watering in winter anyway and they will grow bigger in the spring and be better to plant out.

Yum, I like a touch of cinnamon too.


I really should be outside cutting down old perennials ...

Autumn colour.

They flower for quite a long time, at least a month, unless they get caught by frost. Even picked, indoors, they can last 3 weeks.

Morning all.


We like the Gallopers too, Dove. Enjoy Bressingham.

I thought more people would have answered by now.


I would eat veg from a bed it had been used if a few weeks of decent rainfall had happened since. I expect we all eat veg from supermarkets without knowing it had been used.


I have found that in winter if plants are still green that Glyphosate still works, but it takes longer.
