Indoor Jasmine

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

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

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

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
