I'm glad you liked the photos Aym80

the acer is growing in a large pot because my soil is very alkaline so I have to feed it regular during the growing season, I use a ericacious feed and top dress it in the spring with ericacious compost. As for the size the acer is quite a few years old you have to be patient.

I've just taken some photos in the rain in my garden,

I love the Hostas when they go this lovely buttery colour,

This is a Acer palmatum disectum just changing colour, sorry about the spelling.

the Virginia creepers in the other postings are wonderful.

Do you bubble wrap your greenhouse?

Loana did you see Fridays GW, Montys greenhouse was nicely wrapped up with bubble wrap.

Do you bubble wrap your greenhouse?

You can get bubble wrap at most garden centres , the one I go to sells both large bubbles and small but the large is better.

it sells for about £1.50a meter and if you are careful you can use the same pieces year on year.

its well worth the effort, I use a electric heater with it set just above frost and it works ok.

This is my greenhouse wrapped for the winter.

What tree is this?

It looks like some kind of sorbus.

I leave my Hostas in their pots but I do put the in a sheltered spot for the winter, this is to protect the pot as much has the Hosta. I'm not sure how frost free the pots are . 

In the spring just as the new growth is showing I repot and devide as needed.

it might be a good idea to treat the pots for vine weevil now before you tuck them up for winter.
