Mine was a new plant - leaves bit sorry for themselves - purple stems. Seems there are 2 sorts.

It was a little pot bound - the story of planting today

Look forward to seeing it now.Roll on next year

Thanks Figrat - I'm sticking on this one thread only.

Amongst other things I don't have the time to 'chat' on lots of different threads.

Rather garden!

but I do not know where to come for advice, even if I didn't today

Just spent the afternoon with winter project - silly really  as the weather was glorious, but windy.

Loads of jobs in the garden to do as well. Tomorrow is supposed to be OK so will have to plan those jobs for tomorrow.

Did put in another plant though an Angelica gigas. When I looked it up there was conflicting advice about its best position so I've put it in , in partial shade, and hope it will be OK

And I know, should have asked on here but sometimes feel I'm invisible!

Thought you had a vast estate there for a minute. Mrs Garden

Just looked back at Leadfarmers pictures and see he has a clenmatis Piliu in a pot.

I Was wondering whether to go for the clematis offer in the GW magazine. Now I have seen that, may give it a go. I have a lovely empty blue pot just waiting for something.

my M had her 2 eyes done, she was fine, and couldn't get over how she could see the TV again - we didn't realise she couldn't. The drops were fiddly to start but she soon got the hang of it and has never looked back!. Other health issues now but not sight. Good luck to your M and you

Just nipped out between squally showers to plant a Cephalaria gigantea(giant scabious type with yellow flowers). Have wanted one for ages, bought it at the Mavern show and have just put it where the shrub was I dug up last week. Feel well pleased only hesitant note is that it was so pot bound couldn't even scrape the roots open

Between the showers we have sun here, and didn't have a thunder dtorm though did have some torrential rain

It does need light, well mine do. but I can't help feeling the conservatory isn't right for it as the leaves begun to fall. Mine do lose some leaves during winter but not that many.

i am worried that this advice will be a disaster

But shed if its light - did you say somewhere it's one of those with a window down one side? They will take some frost. Try it in  there, don't forget a little water does not need to be dry -mine get water when I remember

Do not need to be frost free.

Oh gosh I hope this is helpful
