cottage pinks

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.

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.

Verdun, Lou said the are Ash.

we had a similar problem with new neighbour where we used to live, we moved here, no neighbours and all the boundary hedges are ours.

I think I must have been an Egyptian in a previous life, I absolutely adore cats, this last one is my 14th. (Not all at once) I have only ever had 8 at one time.

to protect my seedlings, I put chicken wire or sticks/canes over the soil. Once the plants have grown they don't dig there, just don't have any bare soil, cover it with plants, which is a good reason to get going with gardening.
