I've got a sedum or two like that. I forgot to chelsea chop. I think there is one of those spotty laurel things next door to chop to make space for hellebores still in pots. A 12 x 8 greenhouse swallows quite a lot of overwintering stuff. The stuff that only wants a bit of protection is going in the mini polytunnel.

Flat garage roof is all white, , with a touch of frost on the grass. I must move the Echeveria today and put the greenhouse heater on.

My pension company will not talk to me since I changed my name from my previous married surname back to my  maiden name. This took place 20 years ago.  They want a deed poll. I don't have one. Do you think if I got the bank (who did accept the change) to photocopy and certify all six of my passports(they accepted the change) that that would be acceptable.? I can't ask on the phone  because I spent an hour on the phone last time to get precisely nowhere. Amazing how quick these people are to take your money, but how awkward they get when you want it back.

State of my greenhouse. YesterdayToday. I still have to wrap it up. Its all black at the back because there is a corkscrew hazelnut gone mad that is next on the list for a chop.
