Goji Berries

Just read this info on goji berries. It looks like they could be attractive bushes with berries as a bonus. I will have to try and rescue my plants.

Thanks for that, pansyface. I'll have good read.

I was given some goji berry seedlings earlier this year. They are in small pots in my conservatory. Do they lose their leaves in winter or is it just the red spedermite infestation that has caused this?

I now have conservatory envy but I do agree; If you can't get into the garden, a conservatory is the next best thing. I don't know what I'd do without mine, small as it is, as it is my greenhouse and potting shed too.

Love yesterday's pictures happymarion. sI that big tree in your garden or do you 'borrow' it from a neighbour?

Make the most of the calm weather this week. I've just looked on the BBC weather page and it looks like more gales are to be expected for the next few weeks.

Missed the bulb boat?

I'd say go for it whenever you get the chance. They have more chance of flowering in the ground/pots than if you don't plant. I too still have bulbs to plant as my gardening has been interrupted by surgery on my ankle. Off to the hospital after lunch so hope all the bandages will be off and I can put some shoes on! At least then I may be able to hobble out to the garden.

I think you've got a better excuse than me though. All the best with the new baby. They are very time consuming!

Please help identify this plant

I think it's called prayer plant because the leaves move to an upward position at night. It's not hardy.

Hellebore seedlings in winter

Lena N. Your greenhouse still there after all that wind?!

I agree with nutcutlet and would keep a seedtray in a cold greenhouse or very sheltered spot  Hellebores are tough but soaking compost that then gets frozen (if we do get hard frosts this winter) may damage the roots.

Spring bulbs sprout up

I too have muscari, iris and alliums. They always grow leaves in autumn and survive perfectly well without protection. I've had them many years so even the severe winters a few years ago didn't bother them. Many of these bulbs originate from mountainous regions so are used to being covered in snow all winter. I agree about allium foliage being tatty when the flowers are out. I plant mine where the leaves will be hidden amongst other plants by the time they flower. Muscari will spread like mad if planted in the ground!
