Thank you all for your suggestions. Lots of great ideas to choose from.

Yes I do intend to keep the viburnum pruned, although having taken off the complete front of the bush, it should take a while to regrow!

Thank you for your ideas. I love the idea of a daphne, and the corner is sheltered.

Having  trimmed back a very overgrown viburnum, I have a space for a shrub or rose in the corner of my north facing garden. It now has some sun, and I’d like to have some colour and maybe even perfume in that corner. 

What would you suggest I plant, please?

Some oleanders, a few pelargoniums, lemon verbena and a couple of fuschias. Thanks for replying.

Hi, I’ m sorting plants to put in the greenhouse over the winter. Should I give them a last feed? Also should be watered sparingly when they’re in there?

It does have a frost heater and I’ve just put up new insulation, so they should be ok!

Thanks Bilje. Useful advice.

I've left a couple of large plants outside sheltered against a wall and they have survived too.

Thank you for your help. Have some outside and flowering well, but you never know with our weather!

Sorry for the bad spelling. Should be pelargoniums. Had a senior moment!

I’m sorting plants to overwinter in the greenhouse. There are some pergaloniums I’d like to keep. Should I remove any flowers and cut them back? There’s a frost heater for cold nights, so they should be fine. Any advice gratefully accepted!
