Gilly,  fleece, had forgotten so into the shed we must go tommorrow to retrieve it...I also have an old mattress protector  that kept some nice & cosy. Waste not want not, that's for Lily.

Didn't see you there Dove, I just bit the bullet and paid at B&Q, on pensioner's day , well H did ...didn't need too much had some from last year. Also have some white stuff a bit like flexible polystrene that I line old GH product of H's old job. Poor description but it does the job. Might line conservatory windows with it. That was a joke..I think

Sure does Gilly, not looking forward to it. Have got most of my things into GH & nice pots that might crack. We got a couple of old pallets and H has made more makeshift staging, I seem to have acquired more plants this year, wonder why? The old GH has pallets on the floor to keep things off the slabs and let some air circulate. Dunno where rest will go (hardy plants but in terracotta) maybe under hedging at sheltered side of GH, rather lose the pots than the newbie plants who have taken their GH space. Bubble wrap at the ready


what's still flowering in your garden?

The one in the picture is approx' 15 yrs old. It lived first 4 yrs in pots and finally a big pot due to house moving and overwintered in a cold GH. Been in situ since, faces SE but shaded by apple tree in summer, and not overly exposed to winds.

Baby fatsia now in GH in a pot for it's 3rd year, only because it doesn't have a home yet. This was a self set that I found elsewhere in the garden. I find them hardy when a few years old, not had probs with mine in Yorkshire. Wouldn't expect probs if they are hardy in Scotland
