Overwintering Yourself...

Posted: 11/11/2013 at 16:55

Well, summer 2013 has been a real cracker, but sadly all good things must come to an end! This week will see me lifting my dahlias and clearing out the last of my rudbeckias, my winter bedding and bulbs are in, and so the final question of the year: How do i  overwinter myself...?

I'm pretty new to gardening, this has only been my second summer (and my god was it better than 2012 lol), and i'm keen not to spend the next few months staring longingly out of the window. So i was wondering what my fellow gardeners replace their gardening time with whilst everythings having a rest?

Cheers all

Hi folks,


this week i shall be buying a few bags of multipurpose and i was wondering what the best and worst stuff around is this year based on what you good people have seen?


I picked up, as an emergency, a small bag of Homebase multipurpose compost a few weeks ago and was not impressed, had barely decomposed and seemed to have a lot of small twigs and bark in! I used Westland last year and that was pretty good quality, but i haven't heard if its any good this year and after my Homebase experience i'm shy to jump in until i have some info
