I've never seen them flower in November.

My clematis Perle d'azur flowered in a mild January, but it didn't do it any good, very weak the following summer.

Was very slow after lunch.

When I upload photos the first one ends up last, done it for months. No email notifications for months. Smileys appear at the beginning of the sentence instead of at the end, have to delete and repeat.

I think most annual bedding begonias have fibrous roots.

Thanks for the advice. We are going to England and it is damp and mild now. Same forecast, but more rain for the next week. Begonias are still in full flower, leaves green. But supposing there is a frost before we get back, that's what bothered me.

Going to a meeting tonight, must do some ironing first.

Can begonias be frosted before being dug up and protected for the winter?

Should have looked first, Susan, saw you have a cottage garden. Lovely.

Hello Susan Porter. Welcome to "Hello Forkers", hope you enjoy chatting on here. What sort of garden do you have?

Morning all. Going to garage for new car tyres, before we leave for England and daughter in Northern France on Friday.

Hello, Peter, I live in Dordogne too, but sorry I can't help either, my own garden takes all my time. I'm NE of Périgueux. Hope you find someone.
