Hi!  I planted a young Gunnera Manicata earlier this summer, and its grown well.  I would like some advise on how best to protect it over winter.  We are in the Midlands, so although it is planted in quite a sheltered spot, it does get frost and potentially quite cold.  Just want to give it the best chance or surviving the winter!  Was worried about it rotting if I cover it with straw??  And when would you cover it?  Many thanks xx

Just a quick question - we laid some new turf to replace an ugly patio in the middle of the lawn about 3 weeks ago.  Has greened up nicely and looks good - I still have it roped off to prevent dog/kids treading on it.  How long should I protect it for, and when will it be 'safe' to mow?  Thanks xx

It is a nice shape - compact and not leggy or floppy.  Just miss the flowers

Thanks - maybe I will move a piece elsewhere and see what it does.  Its taking up quite a lot of space if it wont flower.  Have been spying other peoples for weeks, flowering away, and mine - nothing!  Leaves so soft though! xx

Moved into this house last Autumn, and was pleased to see a healthy large clump of Lamb's ears growing under the apple tree.  Its looking great, leaves lovely and growing happily, but it hasn't flowered.  Had it in previous gardens and always flowered - is there a 'type' that doesn't?  Feeling disappointed (as are the bees!).

Plant inspiration please!

Brill - those are some fab ideas thanks!!  Hadn't even thought about an obelisk - great!  And I have a bay in a large pot who either needs a huge new pot or planting out as hes looking a bit sad!  I love this site - lots of clever plant people! xxxxx
