Hi the plant I cut back is a hebe. I forget which type now. I haven't fed any of my plants yet this year as it has been so cold but may do in the near future. Yes ted is most definitely supervisor as he always goes round and inspects my work when I'm finished

they are now permently outside in a cold frame. how do you think there doing?

 this is my honeysuckle and is doing quite well.(the jasmine and clematis are really struggling)

 whats this plant. it was given to me by a neighbour last june/july. his had flowered and looked really nice. he gave me a small baby plant which is put in a pot. it died almost completely but to my suprise these last couple of weeks it has really put on a charge.

 Just my lil ted

Thanks I will bring them in and start the process of hardening them off. I wish this cold spell would come to an end

Hi sontongeoff. I now have 4 choice petunias in pots. Is it safe to leave them in the cold frame overnight considering this is there first time outside today and the cheng temperatures. I live in warks.

good deal on cold frame???

that link was useful thanks, im slowly starting to understand all the terminology used on here now like pricking out and overwintering. My next thing to get is a small cold frame. The compost i used was john innes seed sowing variety. how come?
