Looking good Pete 

Bit worried how close the pond is to the GH door though, might have a accident one day.

Are you putting anything on the patio?

My dad says you could be a number of different things, broke one of the two belts / loose belt - damaged pulley - stripped gear in the gear box - cable needs adjusting. 

He also said, hold the drive in and pull it backwards, if it stops the belts are gripping but will need adjusting. 

I think I got it all before my mind started to wonder.

I chop mine down to 6 inch and pot them up, I store them in the cold greenhouse, they started growing again very early this year due to the warm winter, it resulted in having flowers for the majority of the season 

Any ideas what this is please?

Looks like a sad Syringa Lilac.

Over-wintering Pelargoniums

I pot mine up and take more cutting for a insurance policy,store them in a cold greenhouse, I dont water them over winter or give them the bare minimum. growth normally starts in March / April. I should think they be ok in the shed window.

If you are very worried bring them into the house, I bring mother plants into the house or special variety's.

Yes all similar size,  11cm + for lidl and peter nyysen tulips I ve got are 11/12 or 12/13. Lidl premium quality bulbs have black labels normally priced £1.69 each or 2 for £3, its worth a look even if they dont have the variety's you want. 

November perfect time for planting tulips.

I can recommended Peter Nyssen - Anglia bulbs and Lidl  you be lucky to get any from Lidl now they sell like hot cakes .  

The bulb size you can get from Anglia bulbs are excellent, a little bit dear than peter nyssen though, but excellent bulbs. Peter nyysen good for buying large quantity and have many variety's, I bought Irene parrot and Victoria secret tulips from PN I am going to plant them together.  

I haven't planted any yet so if you want any pictures Wakeshine of size and quality I am happy to help.
