Hi All,

I have grown Michauxia tchihatchewii/ catherine wheel  from seed this year I hear its a beautiful plant.My plant's have just been potted on into 4inch pots but unsure if to plant them out in October or leave them with extra protection in the greenhouse over winter .I live on the east coast in lincs and last year it broke all records and went down to -18..Common sense tells mt to plant them in spring.has anyone else grown these plants before and any advice please be grateful.

OK will look up the Hepatica and give it a go. I have grown Algave from seed this year and also Bananas. Thank you for your replies all..Lets get setting Kate.
