I can never understand that when there are so many channels available showing b***** all and endless repeats that programmes with a regular spot are moved or cancelled.

Why not put snooker,Wimbledon,Olympics or any other sporting event on a dedicated channel?

Just read that you bought the plants last year so have already gone through a winter,hopefully they will do so again!

Agree it does look like an osteospermum,a very pretty one too!

Take cuttings as fidgetbones suggests.As for the actual plant in the garden I would leave it,don't cut it back until spring  (assuming it survives the winter).

I am on the Isle of Wight so fairly mild winters and some tender osteos have survived to flower the following summer.

What's been your best garden freebie?

Last year some very kind person left 2 trays of winter violas on my doorstep.I potted them up and had a lovely display.

I had thought a friend had given them too me but I never did find out who did!

What Plant is this?

Possibly a Viburnum of some sort?

What is this Sedum?

Been looking around and think it might be Sedum pachyclados (sometimes known as Rhodiola pachyclados).

Thanks for your help.

I bought this yesterday in a charity shop.When I got it home found it was rotting at the base due to being over-watered.have cut off the affected part and letting it dry off before re-potting.

Is it a Sansevieria of some sort?

Piece I have is about 3" long.

A few years ago my daughter raised 2 chickens from eggs.

We let them out in our garden and they would follow me everywhere.When I was digging holes etc they were straight in there scratching about.They kept tripping me up so I had to be really careful!

No buddies with me now,just me in the garden.
