Thanks Fairy, I had no idea and would probably have cut them off or resigned myself to a Yellow/green variety (which I'd also like).

rain just started here, very very windy.

Some of the new leaves on my phormium are green / yellow instead of bronze / red. Should i remove these or is there a treatment / reason why this is happening? Thanks.

Had a good morning in garden, bulbs potted apart from anenomes which are still soaking. Started to clear another tub but lost my nerve as its got a hellebore in along with pretty violas and chives.

what happens to these violas now ? - I've taken cuttings (read that somewhere but not convinced) and taken some seeds but not many left, should I throw out the rest of the plant Orr is there a chance it will come back?

the compost is weedy and mossy so should I tip it all on the compost bin and start again?

thanks guys n gals,I'm  forever learning. previous years I'd just throw everything out but since being on here I'm more interested in knowing what can be saved for next year. I think there will be loads more questions coming, so please you lot don't desert us over winter!

Also when is the best time to plant please?

What to do with containers over winter??

I live in chilly Yorkshire, bays in pots have been hit and miss over winter and for this reason I don't have them anymore, same with cordylines. If I eventually have a reliable greenhouse I would try again. Osteospernum has never been a problem however and has never had any special treatment over winter.

Morning all, still thinking about crawling out of bed. Drainage holes.have now been drilled in pots so can finally plant bulbs. Most 'non gardeners' probably won't know a poisonous plant in their garden so hopefully the leaflet helped educate the parents especially if there were pictures too. My children have never tried to eat anything in the garden, I don't grow edibles so its easy to say no to all, which isn't very educational... Hope your Lo enjoyed the chilli Stacey!
