I cannot wait for the first frost

Posted: 21/11/2014 at 16:29

Still no frosts here yet. Not that I want any. A jasmine in the garden is full of flower buds so I dont want any :P

When do I cut back Michaelmas Daisy

They are tough as old boots, I would cut them back now if they look tatty

Haha I grow cineraria to compliment my Cyclamens. A lovely combination.

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?

Top jobs for the weekend

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.
