Indoor Jasmine

Evergreen. Jasminum Polyanthum, The smell is absolutely incredible. I would suggest it would suffer at anything below -6 though.

I'll try get a picture of it tomorrow for you so you can see how tough it is.

That was it Last Summer. Been planted there since 2013 and is doing great, Winter just gone never bothered it in the slightest.

I have this planted on a south facing fence. Its been trying to flower all Winter but it really comes into its own in May/june time.

Like previous posters, it didnt enjoy its 1st Winter but bounced back very quickly and is now covering a fair size area 

I live in South Wales by the way, A milder part of the Uk I guess

 

Lilies & Cats

Ive grown Lillies for years, many cats visit my garden including my 20 year old cat.

Never seen any problems, but I know the dangers and am careful where I place them.

Dahlia pot size

Posted: 06/03/2015 at 16:23

Potted up all my Dahlias today. Some had to go in pretty large 10inch pots as the tubers were so big. Beautiful and Sunny though at around 12c.

Long may this continue

Bulb advice

The ranunculus and gladioli can be started off in pots now.

I would wait until Late April/ May to plant any of those in the ground though.

Dahlias probably best to wait a little while to put into pots

Never heard of Triteleia :P

My 'perennial' foxglove never came back after the 1st year. I dont trust what any of these magazines say.
