House plant unwell

Is it huge or the angle of the photo, if it's really that big it would need a lot of feeding and regularly repotting into fresh compost.

A friend of mine who was over weight and had a needle inserted in her ear lobe, every time she felt like eating she just touched the needle and didn't want the food. This was back in the early '70's. It did work and she lost the weight she needed too. Whether it was the needle or sheer will power. I lost two stone purely because I wanted too, but with her, I don't know, but whatever it was, it worked.

personally, I have needle phobia, so would be on the floor at the first sight!.

I sometimes get the feeling that what Monty does on the programme is what he has been told to do and not what he does for his own personal garden.

With any plants .you start off with a pot that is just a little bit bigger than the root then pot on gradually as they fill that particular pot,  I don't suppose they will grow much over winter, so start off with probably a four inch as they are only plug plants.

i would keep them in a cold frame or greenhouse for this winter, they are very small to leave out.

if they have that mesh or netting stuff on them remove it, then the roots can grow.

I assumed Kay was talking about her profile pic. That can't be done on iPad, or is that just me can't do it

did you put yours on via iPad Chrissy? Without Facebook.

You can only put the profile photo on from a computer,/laptop, not iPad unfortunately

Plant them now, and plant deep, the first ones I planted tended to flower horizontal by the Spring.!

My thoughts, buy as big a one as you can afford, you can always fill it. Or two smaller ones, one to keep warm one just frost free.

go for toughened glass, secured well to the base.
