potatoes

This is the latest I've had my salad potatoes charlotte befor planting out. They get covered with soil to a good depth anyhow so I'm thinking if it does'nt freeze tonight I may get them in tomorrow.

Potatoes in bags

Good for you for giving it a go Bexlloyd. I've grown potatoes in bags and containers many times. You are right that it's the leafy green bits you have to protect from the frost. A fleece should do fine depending on how low the temperature is ment to get. If you set them in a sheltered place that would help too. Good luck.

Violas or pansies. Which is superior?

I go for Violas usually but the colour mix of Pansies is much more varied. I like and sometimes grow both.

Pruning lavender and rosemary

My apologies Swedeboy I was only half paying attention as I was doing something at the time. I always thought you could'nt cut into old wood with Lavender and am delighted to have learned now that you can if you bury it.

Birds nesting

It sounds to me like a price worth paying discodave, to have provided a home for those little birds this spring, well done you.

Spring -summer

Quite often sweetwilliam are biannuals. Having said that I'm hoping for some flowers from the ones I sowed and planted out last year.

The Rudbeckia are great, mine lasted right through to the end of January this year. I grew Rustic Dwarf and previously Cheroke Sunset. Another plant that will give long months of colour is the Aquilegia, they can go on for ever and are a great link between spring and summer.
