They should be fine - give them a bit of support so they don't get buffeted around by the winter winds.

Good morning all  An even sharper frost here today -3.9C in the sheltered back garden. Blackbirds are tucking into their porridge and a robin is singing in the ash tree.

Welcome aboard Clueless 

Im right over the other side ... in sunny Norfolk! 

We have gardeners here sharing a wide range of gardening experience and ideas, helping each other along.  Don't worry, it's definitely not a place for showing off , but sharing triumphs and disasters and all the stages in between. 

And there's the Potting Shed for chatting about all sorts of stuff

Fairy - I can't imagine a much better view than that 

Spent the afternoon with my feet up with a good book and Radio 3. Now OH is washing up and I'm listening to Nick Drake. 


Obelixx - just had my Broadleigh catalogue - full of gorgeous nerines ... Some a bit special

I think Aym's solution is brilliant! Nice and easy to solve the problem!

See original post
