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.

I see Johnny, I've noticed changes in the weather here over the last couple of years, we didn't get a proper hard frost until the new year this winter, winter before I had begonias flowering into December, its seem to be more very wet / floods and windy in winter than cold weather recently. The temperature last night got down to 3C but meant to get warmer next week, so hopefully will get dahlias flowering up to the end of October. 

How long is the growing season Calgary Alberta for tender perennials like dahlias and cannas? I plant mine out very late May / June.
