. Do you think they can freeze in just 24 hours when it's around +5?


See original post

 nothing freezes at +5C, freezing point is 0C


It's a difficult decision to make when plants have been grown soft indoors. It's not an easy time of year for hardening off. I'd put them outside on warmish days for a week or 4, then outside at night if it's not freezing. Eventually they'll be hardened off, you'll see a change in appearance, not so soft and green

Iris for pond/marginal

Have you got marsh marigolds to start the season? A variety of irises won't extend it much  by comparison with plants from another genus

How big it this pond Angie? How many varieties can you fit in?


If you don't like the variegated I. pseudacorus I'd get rid of it before it goes too far. I have a variety called I. p  var bastardii, a nice cream colour. I don't like the variegated one either. I think it's likely that both of these will seed back to the species yellow. 


I haven't any experience of the others. I have ponds but the water levels are so variable only the tough can stand it.

barrowloads of thick white tubers out of the ground caused by alstroemeria

Posted: 13/11/2016 at 21:06

A sterile plant is one that either doesn't produce seed at all or the seed isn't fertile, (won't germinate)


Invasive roots is another issue altogether.

aym, if it's sterile it won't invade by seeding. You've found out for yourself that the roots are invasive.
