Thanks BL, can't see the pic too well (no it's not the wine's fault!). It was the ivy I think I was looking at, I have a similar wall and I'm trying to grow sempervivum in them (successfully) but wondered if you had something else there. Think I'll steer clear of ivy though

Where do you keep your tender plants?

Ah, good point nut, im thinking more about temperamental half hardy than truly tender.

Over winter you can wrap the pots in bubble wrap or put some polystyrene between them. I changed last year from the type you have to a polycarbonate ( brain not working and that doesn't sound right, but the rigid plastic), I also put fleece over the plants at night. We have patio glass doors in the garage so I used to put the old type in there as we got enough light in the daytime. Id not use a mini GH heater in the soft plastic one.

Hello everyone

Not checked in on this thread for a while, still catching up = did anyone get Verdun a new coat for his birthday, he seems to use the old one a lot it must be worn out!

I got a miscanthus from Verdun for my birthday Lily, I'm sure he has enough for all of us!

It'd look nice on it's own as a single stem in a vase Panda
