Planting now

Posted: 23/10/2016 at 12:49

They're not the hardy types (C. hederifolium and C. coum) that will naturalise in your garden  , but they'll be ok in containers in a sheltered spot outside.  

I sometimes do a mixed planting for our porch in the winter with some of these and an ornamental grass and a trailing variegated small leaved ivy, and plant some Tete a tete daffodil bulbs underneath them to grow and flower in the spring.  

Truffels or just fungi?

Glad you're catching up on the sleep Pdoc   Good luck to Mrs Pdoc - been there and done that - not a lot of fun but it was surprising what opportunities appeared after a spell taking on some agency posts.  Fingers very crossed for her. 

can I be planted outside

Our house plants spend most of the summer outside in a sheltered spot,  but stood on grit and with copper tape around them. They really benefit from their summer holiday, but just this week OH removed a striped snail from our landing windowsill - it must've hitched a ride on the Christmas cacti

Good morning all  G'day Pat   It obviously takes one to know one   

Hosta, my OH is joining you at the coal face today. Not usual for him but they're short staffed so ...  And as we have a trip to Lincs it'll be an evening journey. Back tomorrow evening.

Tastes good Fairy 

The Bressingham photo is Percy's Pride which I love. I'm also tempted by Little Maid. They're both sp gorgeous.

That's great - wonderful that your son will be able to take his children and grandchildren to see it and maybe have picnics in its shade

Just had a phone call from Wonky - her step-daughter visiting from Brighton (and now a qualified teacher with a fiancé and a driving licence  :shock: ) loves the last jumper that I knitted for DD, and if she gets the wool will I knit one for her too?  ........... Of course I will ... :D 

Oh, and there's a boiled fruit cake in the oven - don't let me forget to check it will you - it's in a different shaped tin so not overly sure of the time it'll take to cook .........
