Gardengirl, yours have a little way to go.

Hi yourself! You know what I told you about changing your name...... I'm old and it confuses me.

...not very pretty, I know, but this mould does no harm to the plants.

I just don't understand what is happening at Liverpool!  Steven Gerrard is leaving....he's 34 so nothing surprising there, except this just isn't (or never has been) the way the club treats its legends.

Signing Balotelli was a big, big mistake and in last night's FA Cup game Wimbledon were a far more committed team which would have given Liverpool the boot AGAIN without the help of Stevie G.

I can't really work that out for you, ommthree....but initially, I would say they would not be harmed by not watering.

For what it's worth, here in the Midlands we don't have frost forecast during the next week, so I would, if necessary water them....remember, there not supposed to be growing, so require very little of anything.

Hi, ommthree

Watering is something you have to play by ear really, under-watering be preferable to overwatering. To be honest, I don't water very often at all during the winter, when I do, I try to choose a time when a few frost-free nights are expected....the object being to prevent the roots being encased in a block of ice.

The object at this time is to just keep them marking time until the spring growth begins.
