Thanks, I think I'd better bring it indoors then!

I just bought a Cuphea hyssopifolia from B&Q. Has anyone tried growing these before? I'm just wondering how hardy they are with the winter coming.

Indoor azaleas

I've got an indoor azalea that  finished flowering a few weeks ago - and was lovely I may add.  I'm not sure what to feed it with now though, also  when and how often. Some of the leaves are turning reddy brown and dropping off, so it's obviously hungry, but what it the best thing to give it? I top-dressed with ericaceous compost, but I think it needs more than that. What about a foliar spray, but if so, which one?

I often get plants from Morrisons - at least you can see what you are getting. Also Lidl aren't bad on the odd occasion they have them.

I planted a little gooseberry last year, and it even gave me a berry, which was sweet enough to eat raw. I'm hoping for a few more this year, but it's still a young plant. It's a red variety.

Aquilegia are pretty flowers. They do cross pollinate so wait and see what colours you get. And they will self-seed, so pull up what you don't want.

The violets are lovely this time of year, and I like the leaf shape too. I encourage them in my garden - they are so small and dainty anyway, and don't take up much space.

Does anyone know when...

Tonight- yay!!!

When do I repot please?

The bottom ones have got too straggly. You might be able to save them by pricking out but planting the bendy stem deep with the leaves poking out about 1 cm about the level of the compost. This sometimes works. If not, get more seed and start again.

Good luck!
