I arranged a lovely couple of meets on another forum we used to belong to, but everyone here is so scattered about the country.

Lots of people have met up on here though, you just have to find who lives in your area.

I would give it a good soak initially, Best to stand it in a dish of water and give it time to soak up, its because theres not much soil left in it. You need to do that before you start chopping it about. Then only when it needs it  will you water sparingly. 

You can get Christmas pressies for all the family off it!!

That is beautiful Obe, I love the clematis with the echinops, nice combination, and a good idea with the bark paths.

Billie, if its really really packed I think you could safely repot it now. They are very tough old things.

I think so Alan, it certainly wasnt the Turkey trot.

They seem to be getting tamer now since stopping hunting with dogs ( please, please lets not start on that though) there was a time when they never came out during the day, except really old ones, but now they just sit in the garden. I just wish he wouldnt leave a little present when he goes!

What to do now?

Hello Peroxiss, welcome to the site

I use this couple of months to have a little rest from the hard stuff. I have plants in the greenhouse, seedlings, so sometimes I will pot some on, check for any dead leaves, general tidy up. I had a pond this year, so I like to take a stroll down to see that, there is a chair down there, so can just sit. Its nice to just go out and do nothing.

The garden, now I have almost finished mulching, will get left, the frosts or snow will stop the weeds growing, they will be back with a vengance in the Spring, so not worth bothering now.

After Christmas, I will get all my seeds out, put them in sowing order, that will start in Feb. Thats about it I think, take it easy now, you will be double busy in the Spring with seeds, cuttings, dividing etc.
