My sad Rosemary plant :(

Posted: 09/11/2014 at 12:04

Hi BK, I have to agree with you, it looks sad. It may be past the point of no return

I don't know what expandable compost is but you need something gritty and keep it fairly dry through the winter.

What do you do next with cuttings that have taken pls?

Christopher Lloyd said don't disturb cuttings at this time of year. 

What I sometimes do if I have a pot full of roots now is to pot on the whole lot as one lump. That way the roots can be left undisturbed til spring

Lovely little lupins - is it best to just leave these pls?

I'd leave them in those pots, don't let them totally dry out but less  water through the winter

Alliums in pots - roots coming through the bottom already?

They've got their nutrients stored in the bulb Jack, don't worry about that. They'll need some more food after flowering to build up for the next year though

my narcissi in pots have all got roots out the bottom

I think you're right PP, it's alyssum, an annual, clusters of 4 petalled flowers.

Iberis sempervirens has it's flowers arranged in circles so tight you can barely count the petals or see gaps between them

What is this cute little beauty please?

I went to the library, then to the GC for some fat balls and by the time I got back it was spitting with rain, later pouring with rain
