Invasive shrub

Brilliant. So if I pot up this section it should give nice colour and I can control it. Thanks so much.

This looks like a lovely shrub. It has been in flower for months now. But my neighbour says it has spread all over his borders. Any idea what it is? It looks like a mallow.

Potted plants for winter?

Thanks for all the tips guys. I saw packs of six cyclamens in my local diy centre last week. I didn't  buy though as they are in full bloom. Surely they will have gone over by winter? I'll buy some in late October I think. 

I bought some lovely sized terracotta pots in my local supermarket, £5 each. I thought that was very reasonable. I'm gonna plant up two with cyclamens , two with crocus and I think the heather is a great idea. I saw a lovely white flowering one last winter in the local gc so I think I'll pick some up later in the season. Thanks for the tip. 

Euphorbias are lovely. I might have a  think about them. Never really thought them a winter plant though.  Just last week I bought two sedums and two sea Holly's. The sea Holly's hopefully will hold their lovely blue colour.

Has anyone any ideas what I could plant in pots for some winter interest. 

Im thinking some cyclamen, crocus for early spring, followed by tulips later. Are there any nice colours that I could get by planting out anything else, although I know options are limited in winter. 

Storing potted herbs

Brilliant, I might bring them inside the garage if it gets very cold, but that's great to know. If I take some rosemary cuttings now do I need a greenhouse? will the cuttings be ok in compost inside a window?

I have some mints, marjoram , chives, rosemary etc in glazed pots. When the weather starts to turn do I bring them into the garage and store them by a sun facing window? Will it keep them ok till next spring?

pruning honeysuckle vine

Posted: 18/08/2014 at 13:50


I have these two honeysuckles, and I'm fairly sure I need to cut them right back. They've got very woody. When do I cut them back and do I cut near the base of each vine like my lgc advised. 

Will they take long to regrow?
