Gardeners' World

I've done both, lifted some and left others. It just depends on how much rain we get rather than anything else, they do sometimes just rot in the ground. Lifting them does mean I can bring them on earlier the following late winter or early spring.

Totally agree about the weather being a waste of time. It's not detailed enough for each place to make a proper difference, time could be used with gardening tips instead. Also, so may people either record the programme or watch it on iplayer at a later date so whatever benefit there might have been had has already gone.

Is there an up to date thread about GW with comments about the current programmes?

Compost review

I too have been using Jacks Magic for years now on the recommendation of my daughter. I think it's one of the best I've ever used. For any permanent planting in containers it is in my opinion, the one to go for.  I've also found that My Dahlia and Begonia do best when planted into it as well.

I've had both Limelight and Grandiflora in containers for a number of years now and they flower beautifully. I cut them right back to within 30cm or so. But toward the end of the month rather than now. Good luck.

I'd so much rather have Beechgrove than Gardeners World but I watch them both.

Plant cuttings

If you took them last spring then there would'nt be anything benificial in that pot for them. I'd lift them, keeping the soil around the roots which may be small, and either plant them out somewhere or pot them into fresh compost. Good luck and well done.
