Thank you BTG-should I feed as well?

I have 2 Magnolia that are in huge pots that I would like to put into the ground-would it be OK for me to do this now, or should I wait until they have lost their leaves? They are really quite big, and I'm worried about them getting pot bound.

Oh no..I'm going to have to go and buy more seeds now!!!!!!!!!! I pick my Sweet Peas regularly and put them by the bed. Going to sleep with the scent in my nostrils is wonderful. Also get a wonderful waft from the honeysuckle by the French windows.Fidget, if I get seeds now then, is it best to get them in ready for next year?

Very wet In Staffs! At least the water butts will get filled up again! Having home grown Dwarf Beans, Carrots, Mange -tout and Potatoes with my Roast Chicken for Tea. It really does give you a sense of satisfaction doesn't it? Have a lovely day tomorrow Marion, and I hope that you don't get too wet.

Are you finding this is a poor season?

Rhubarb gone mad, so loads in freezer. Dwarf beans doing really well, Rasperries still going and getting a second flush of flowers. Potatoes (in pots) brilliant crop, so all in all, not a bad year. My only disappointment has been my apple trees after a good year last year-only three apples on one tree, and two of them have fallen off!!

Thanks everyone. Cuttings are already in pots, and will chop it back a bit, as it is getting a bit woody like you say Verdun. And yes GG, I wasn't sure about how far down I could prune.

Thanks Dove-I'll leave it until the Spring then. Have taken some cuttings...just in case I get it wrong, and chopped quite a few lumps off to make some Apple and Herb Jelly.
