They should be fine, Lily....the cold won't bother them. It would be a good idea not to let them dry-out at the roots....a common problem when planted against a wall.

Good luck.

PS, the wall will retain warmth, this will be emitted during the night, so that will help.

How much....

Mine was a motercycle which I bought for £100 in about 1978 and sold five years later for.. £150!

 

Had lots of motor cycles, Bob....think the first one was a BSA A7 500cc twin (1959) costing around £300.

How much....

Awwww.... I passed my driving test in a new Morris 1100, Dove.  Driving lessons were £5 for a double lesson.

How much....

......did you pay for your first car?

Hunting through some old paperwork this morning I found the following invoice:

'One second hand Morris Minor as seen, tried and approved.

£40. 0. 0. +  £3. .0 .0 for work carried out to pass MOT inspection.

Philippa - as you probably know, yellow sweet peas are the ones that have thus far eluded sweet pea breeders and (as I see it) this chloranthus as an attempt to address the issue and is still an experimental project.....for what it's worth, I have no knowledge of growing them.

 Great shots everyone.

The evening skies looked rather angry here tonight.

Chicky - the secateurs I use are like this:  www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B002W6YYXY?keywords=single%20handed%20long%20secateurs&qid=1440334685&ref_=sr_1_fkmr0_1&sr=8-1-fkmr0

As I said, they're operated singlehanded and grip whatever you're cutting.

Hi, chicky

Pleased you've had success with your Chelsea Collection....if anyone ordering seed from Eagle SPs mentions my name, they would be interested.

Regarding those tall plants, I wouldn't recommend hacking them....I have a pair of long, single hand operated, secateurs for the purpose.
