Yes! I'm in! Dove, your seat is booked. Can do a Norwich Station pick up too, if anyone needs it.

Nut, you must NOT let me buy anything that needs overwintering.....

Soulboy, my online check suggested a gravel garden, whilst another said any soil.  hence often easier to ask on here and get people's experience.  hoping you're righ though - my soil is a bit acidic.

definitely in pot.  Definitely in greenhouse over winter.  And will see what I can do about cuttings.

Ta all!

Hi Nut.  It's only balanced in the pot at the moment, but it does indeed look good.  Ill put it in properly and keep it potted over this winter at least then.  Perhaps I could take some cuttings and experiment with them in future years.  Are they easy from cuttings? Or perhaps divide?

I was advised to leave echinacea til spring. Think that might be because of my heavy soil tho.

Hi, fell for this coreopsis at the garden centre. Photo doesn't do it justice. It's the most gorgeous autumnal dark red.  Can you tell me if it is unadvisable to plant it in my clay soil.  Would it be better off in a pot in my border and if so how my grit should I mix in?

if it can go in the ground, ought I wait til spring to plant?

I'm ok planting tulips earlier than Nov, in pots, aren't i? It's just not to put them in the ground early in case they rot?

Hey all.  Would it make sense if I come to west acre on 20th and postpone beth chattos?  I don't know if I can yet.  Need to talk to hubbie and whether he has plans that day (it's ringing a bell but can't think why).  IF I can come on 20th and IF I can have the car, then I could pick Dove up.
