I have a couple of large sturdy coldframes- thanks for advice J, might use the tea light/pot and the black plastic bottles if it gets very cold.

Some lovely pictures,especially liked the shot of the steps and stepping stones leading up to the lawn.

Good luck with the NGS next year. I'm sure another poster on here does the same

I know what you mean about the lack of day light but I do enjoy the changing of the seasons. Looking forward to New Years Day

I have a few Cyclamen, though not sure what type. Had some flowers a few weeks ago but all leaves now.

I think my snapdragons might make it and some wallflowers, touch and ago with the Rudebekias, some of gone with the frost but some are still alive

what are mini bubbles? Are they are a smaller version of the tubs filled with washing up liquid  that you use a wand to blow bubbles out of?

Thanks nutcutlet, I did dead head a lot throughout the Summer(?) to encourage further flowers but have left them alone for a good couple of months in the hope that they will self seed. I think the soil is fairly free draining, they are in newly made walled beds.I'm wondering if this year's plants will make it through to next year, will just have to wait and see. I'm sure I will sow more just  to be on the safe side

I'll leave the Bowles Mauve alone, flower count on new years day sounds like a great idea
