They come to hibernate in our homes in the autumn, then we turn the heating up around Christmas and wake them up. 

A quiet dark corner in a frostfree garage or shed is the place for them. 

They won't survive in a warm house.

Roses blooming Winter

How lovely   We've had a long and very warm autumn - it's stimulated a lot of summer/autumn flowering plants to carry on and on and on, particularly in sheltered spots.   As Dave says, as the weather gets really wintry they'll get discouraged. 

When I was a child Ma had a sheltered southwest facing rose garden - most years there were usually a few blooms for the table on Christmas Day!

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning folks    I've just been listening to Open Country on Radio 4, coming from the Suffolk coast at Dunwich and Minsmere - fabulous - if you missed it Listen Again!

Gemma , my sister in law is from Combs near Stowmarket.  I grew up near Debenham.

BL - I'll wait to hear from you

BL - which bit of Suffolk do you need B&Bs in?  I used to live in Mid Suffolk (Framlingham/Halesworth area) and have family in and know Suffolk Coastal (from Southwold down the coast to Aldeburgh/Orford area well - if you need some suggestions for those areas PM me

Get if off your chest.

You could be Lizzie's Busy Lizzie

Back from visiting Aged Ps - both quite well, Ma not too muddled, Pa just old and tired.  I left them to get on with their Shepherd's Pie and trifle and visited son - think he had a housework blitz when I phoned and said I was coming - everything very clean and shiny and a smell of polish! LOL

Pdoc, sorry your greenhouse wasn't insured   When we moved here I was determined to have one, but there's nowhere to put one really - can't go under the ash trees as they drop twigs, and anyway it'd go all green, and anywhere else would just be all wrong - so now I've just got a little wooden mini-greenhouse.  It does mean that I can't go and potter in it when the weather's bad and I don't have a potting bench etc, but I do my potting up on sunny days on the table on the terrace - OH can have his studio doors slid back and bring the coffee or Sauv. blanc out to me while I'm potting - every cloud has a silver lining

Could Panda's silvery leaved foliage plant be Helichrysum petiolare? http://www.easybloom.com/plantlibrary/plant/licorice-plant-1

Often used for bedding and pots so it would go with the others.
