Newbie - should I start over ?

Most of those can stay in the same place for a long time. Just give them a good mulch with some well rotted farm yard manure or compost.

You're welcome Kef.

I'm off to garden centre now. May do a bit of supermarket shopping on way back.

Calm and cloudy here.

Its been sunny here this afternoon. I have taken cuttings off my white daisy argyranthemum. The amazing thing is that I took them from plants that have been in the garden alll winter, instead of the one I lifted and kept inside.

I've also potted up some more torchwood aquilegia seedlings. Dunno where I'm going to put them all.

I suppose someone will take them off my hands.

Don't forget GW is back at 8.30 on Beeb 2

The brugmansias are cuttings off cuttings off my avatar.  They should all come pink.  The trumpets are about a foot long. My mum has a yellow one as well.  The ones in my greenhouse still look like sticks, but they always come back. think of them like a tender buddleja. cut it down in Autumn (and shove the cuttings in a jar of water), overwinter on the dry side and frost free, then when it sprouts, feed it and water well, and give it a sunny position.

Since joining GW forum,I have been overwhelmed with all the support & advise

I think that where the forum scores,is that it puts like minded people together. Amongst my friends, i am the odd one....the one they come to for advice when their garden needs sorting out, but I can't really enthuse about things.

My "friends on the forum", however share knowledge and enthusiasm for plants and gardens.

spring is coming

The chestnuts will be fine outside. I think they would be too warm inside.

Calla lily will suffer from frost and should stay inside for now.
