Thanks Wintersong for the advice I can plant in pots with confidence now

I am going to plant mine in tall plant pots and leave in the greenhouse until the warmer weather comes. They sound not to difficult to raise in the correct conditions.  i have a sunny poor well drained spot earmarked for them. Some interesting reading in all the comments

I have received today five tubers? at least I think that is what they are. Do I plant them in pots in the greenhouse or straight in the garden.  I live in Wakefield West yorkshire When planting do I plant them horizontal or vertical ( they are about 4" long). I love the look of Sea Holly but have never grown them before.

Hope you like it as much as we do, I am sure you will and I hope it gives you as much pleasure as it has given me

I have had a Zephryn Drouhin climbing rose for the past 15 years it is a beautiful fragrant rose and another of its attributes is it is a thornless rose. The only thing I have found is it is susceptible to mildew but with systemic fungicide I have overcome this problem- well almost, but it wouldn't stop me having another if I llst this one.  Flowers from early June until Christmas and I live in the West Riding of Yorkshire.  A truly wonderful rose

I think you may be right although now I have it indoors in the conservatory, I may trim it a little when it becomes acclimatised, what do you think?

I always keep my begonia corms over winter, some I have had for six or seven years.  I put them into old shoe boxes and store in the shed.  I very raely have to buy new ones.  Golden Showers is my favourite and thry keep coming year after ytear.

Thanks for the info, I will bring mine indoors, do you know if I can prune it as it looks rather untidy and straggly not as compact as when I bought it 6 months ago
