My wendys wish now looks poorly after the frost, worse than Amistad.  I'm going to cut them down, dig them up and put them in the greenhouse for the winter.

Overwintering Red Banana

I overwintered a maurelii last winter in the greenhouse, the leaves went horrible and I cut them off in early spring snd repotted and fed it. Now its in a huge pot. I've cut off all the leaves, wrapped the stem in fleece, and put a carrier bag over the top. The greenhouse is kept just above freezing. I won't water until March.

I'm glad he's at home recuperating, Runnybeak. Its a lot easier than hospital visiting. After last years palaver I've come to hate hospital visiting.

We're having a birthday/looking at wedding photos party on Saturday. We couldn't have fireworks at the wedding venue, so for Saturday we have fireworks to set off early, then lots of  drinks sorted. I just need to decide what we are feeding them.

Eryngium  or nettles would be good while small shrubs are growing.

Holly is also good and prickly and good for little birds to nest in.

We had a slight frost yesterday,  the remaing dahlias went black overnight and collapsed. This morning the garden is white all over. 

Hubby went to Cockermouth in Cumbria at silly o clock this morning. I did warn him to take a shovel with him but he's adamant he won't need it. I was going to do a bit of Christmas shopping today, but I might abandon that for a day by the fire.
