Hi all really foggy this morning and very cold, I've just put some seed out for the escaped pheasants (they missed getting shot, at the pheasant shoot over the way ) and its VERY cold out there and white with frost. This is the kind of morning when you are pleased you don't have to turn out for work.

Hi all,

any ideas what this is?

I would love a decent sized cloud pruned conifer, I'm trying to get one growing but it is taking forever.

any Camelias and azaleas, I'm on very alkaline soil and can only grow them in pots.

Lifting Dahlias and Cannas

Posted: 15/11/2016 at 15:47

I live in the south west as well and I grow my cannas in large tubs and bring them in, I store them nearly dry in the pots in the summer house. I did leave some in the ground to see if they would over winter but no success so be sure and bring them in.

Dahalias I leave in the ground with a thick mulch on them, I feel they make better plants if you don't keep lifting them.

Im  on free draining soil if your soil is clay you will proberly have to lift your dahlias they will rot if they are standing in water.
