I've been thinking about Pdoc and Bushman and hoping they're ok - positive thoughts winging their way ((hugs)).

I'm back - I've had 'cupping' on my back and shoulder - OH says my back looks as if I've been run over by a motor bike  I was rather hoping I'd look more like an Olympic swimmer  Apparently it shows up areas where there is poor blood supply to the muscles, and then helps to stimulate the blood flow in that area.

Cyclamen hardiness

Personally speaking I'd put it under the car port now - they really don't like being rained on.  

What is this plant.

It's one of the Malvaceae family - a cousin of the Common Mallow (which you'll have seen growing wild on banks and hedgerows), but I don't know which one.

Cyclamen hardiness

Cyclamen 'Sierra' are of the C. persicum type and are not hardy in the UK - they're happiest in a cool-lsh room in good light but out of direct sun.  


Water from the bottom - don't keep them too wet.

Not carrot.  They look much more like Phacelia - as you say, often grown as a green manure, also as a plant for bees as they love the flowers.

We've put the net over the pond, but the ash leaves are always later falling than most trees - we noticed on the way home yesterday that the lime trees along the Newmarket road have just started dropping their leaves and the pathways beneath are golden - they're the first to fall around here. 

Advice on a container hedge?

The space in the hedge, or the potential space, and the area around it ...

Honeysuckle

As long as they don't dry out they should be ok.  Or you could try hardening them off over the next couple of weeks, putting them outside  in a sheltered spot during the day and putting them in the garage at night, until they're tough enough to stand the winter outside in their sheltered spot.  They'll drop their leaves, but that's to be expected - they're deciduous. 

Invasive grass around pond margin

It makes sense to me too Verdun - there's no point in spending time and energy (not to mention money) doing half a job and finding the problem returns.
