what size pots now Lyn?  You will lose them if you plant them out now I think.  My own rooted plants vary from a few inches in 9cm pots to bigger in 3 litres and they will all have some protection either by fleece or gh.  Those in the garden will stay out and I will know which are hardiest.  Black Adder and Sangria have survived 2 years outside already

they are in four inch pots, deep ones.

I don't like it either, yet there was a post on here the other day and the poster said she liked it and wanted it to spread.

Me too Steve, I can't bear to see them fighting over baby birds and ripping them in half. I have to chase them away here.

Last grass mowing

Posted: 26/09/2015 at 13:35

It's very wet here so last mowing is mid November, if we're lucky.

i like to keep the front roadside cut if I can as it's covered in snowdrops and if the grass is long the look is spoilt. 

As you know I love exotic/ foreign plants!

That's mine, but when I put it out in the Spring, the leaves died off as a new one grew, so the bottom ones dropped off, I brought it in the conservatory and its growing lovely, even has three baby figs on it now.

So don't plant out now then, should I repot as they are a bit tight?

Keeping hydrangea over winter

Posted: 26/09/2015 at 13:29

I have hydrangea cuttings grown on in pots that I did about three years ago, still in their pots, never brought them in for the winter, but maybe if you are up North somewhere some glass protection may be good.

i have Obe's  problem if I prune too early in the Spring so I don't touch them till April.
