Cineraria

Usually grown as an Annual in the UK.

It can be overwintered in frost free conditions I believe.

My Salix Flamingo still looks as good as it did during the Summer! I'm guessing the leaves will drop like flies in the next few weeks though.

I guess it helps that there hasnt been any frost here

What's left for us to grow?

Work today but the weather was awful anyway. Should be decent enough for me to plant out some of the bulbs that have already rooted in some plastic pots in the greenhouse tomorrow.

Have to agree with Bill, as long as the tubers are big enough and dried out properly they will be fine.

Beautiful colours there too, I might have to venture away from the single-flowered types somewhat next year.

Dug  a few up today and some of the tubers are HUGE, all were grown from seed this year, they truly are amazing plants.

Dahlias are originally from Mexico, higher regions I think.

I have no intention of waiting for frost, I think November is a reasonable time of year to lift them, I will be doing a few today that look tatty and have finished flowering.

well the original plant certainly does count, for an herbaceous plant to live over 100 years is epic!

wow those are some tough plants.

Funnily enough I recently moved a Cyclamen Hed. the Corm was only about the size of my Palm though.

Hi all after seeing the oldest houseplant thread, I was wondering what your oldest garden plants are?

I think we can exclude trees and shrubs as they tend to live a long time anyway, although feel free to add one if you think its old enough
