Got out fairly early, 9:30, to do the supermarket sweep and have to admit I really quite enjoyed it. Just went round at my own pace ignoring the elbows looking at all the festive goodies and listening to the seasonal music. All done until I discover that one missing ingredient.

I've never seen this before

It's actually gone in the green bin. I assumed that they wouldn't transplant at this time of the year and I still have half a packet of seeds left which I will start off in February. It was supposed to be black but was in fact deep purple.

I know it's been mild but I found this in the garden at the weekend. A poppy head, left for decoration, has sprouted hundreds of seedlings.


what's still flowering in your garden?

Stingy councils you two have. Here in Havering the only week they don't collect the green bin is Christmas week.

Same for me Daniel. I've never had a notification and there is no sign of nutcutlet's test I'm afraid.

Many thanks Dove. Moving it from the greenhouse tomorrow into the conservatory. Can't trust the GH not to drop below 0 if the winter's bad.

I have this plant, it's been flowering magnificantly all summer but I'm not sure what to do with it now. Where shall I keep it over the winter and how should I deal with it in the spring ? Will it come back or should I take cuttings ?

Many thanks in anticipation.
