Mine grows in part shade and it's fine. I love the pruning's, it keeps cats off my raised beds and nursery beds.

Actinidia damage

Well it's hardy down to about minus 10 and lower so I wouldn't worry too much. It will recover.

Frost damage?  We've had a few sharp frosts recently, depending on where you are.

Spring Bulbs in Pots

You can leave them in the pots, but they need a good feed to keep them going Penny. A handful of FBB well watered in will help.

I answered it a few days ago nut, it's a duplication.

Why plant daffs in October?

Posted: 29/04/2015 at 13:37

I regularly leave planting some daffs till end of November early December. It lengthens the season and now I still have  a few in bud and many in full flower. I never see the point in strict planting times for anything other than roses(bareroot). And it's huge fun being a rebel and seeing the faces of the neighbours admiring the garden as they pass by. I'm usually working, but the wife often says they have commented and asked why I still have things in flower when their displays are over.  

Spring Bulbs in Pots

Once the flowers have gone over I usually take out all the bulbs and replant them in the garden for next year and so far nothing has gone wrong. It also allows me to fill gaps before all the perennials come up.

It's hungry Lee. Dhalia's need food and lots of it. A general purpose feed for now, then a high potash feed once the flowers come.
