What's the weather like in your area?

Oh wanted to ask. I have put the pelargoniums in as small pots as possible but they are still very bushy and tall, should I cut them back at all. Also how little water should I give them? Do I also do the same with the fuchsias?

Beautiful here in the south today. I went out in nightie and dressing gown but had to take dressing gown off as I was too hot. Got all the perlargoniums up like you shrinking violet. Also the non hardy fuchsia. I was going to take out bergonia but they were still too nice. Keeping my fingers crossed that we don't ger an early frost.

I hope mine grow as well as yours David. Will toilet roll tubes be ok to plant them in? Or should I get something special?
