Oooh Fidget - Tapas - there's an idea - it's a while since we've been out for tapas .........  think it has to be done 

Hello Nut, I'm sewing up big woolly jacket - it's the time of year for indoor projects 

It's a pleasure Mrs G

So it's one that has the longer 'bunny ears' type petals.  They're a little more tender than the English ones.  B

ubble wrap the pots that's fine - raise the pots onto feet or bricks (keeping the drainage holes free) to make sure they don't get waterlogged.  

Move them into a dryer sheltered area if possible.  

Fleece at night is fine but don't leave it over them unless the weather is really bad as they need good air flow to prevent rot setting in. 

Champagne's for everyone - we're all celebrating with Stacey - it'll probably go to my head as I'm on a Fast Day

When you say ornamental apple - do you mean a crab apple?  Do you have the name of the variety?

It must be so frustrating for you ((hugs)) And how can you do seed swaps or arrange to come on some of the garden visits in the summer if you can't use the Private Messaging.

Afraid not.  I suppose you could always Register again, with a slightly different name - Star Gaze Lily with capitals like that ought to be ok - then you might be able to get PMs like the rest of us?

As long as you do it openly so it's clear you're not someone else pretending to be you (as has happened in the past) I don't think people would mind.

Absolutely Mark - you've got it.  Only a cm or so below the surface will be fine.  Not too close together then you won't have to thin them out.  In 12 months time you should have some little trees
