It's not about technical glitches Tom.  It's about friendship, knowledge, fun, support and sharing.  Sorry you're leaving Tom.  If you change your mind you will be welcome 

I really enjoy this forum

Hi Steven

Yes excellent for veg.  Mushroom compost is ideal mix in with top soil.  Sounds perfect for carrots too.  Try to mix it all as thoroughly as possible

I guess they are expensive. Got mine at good price and well happy with them.  If they grow again next spring ....I.e. that they are truly perennial....then they will be very good value.

They will,be sterile so no seeds.  Root cuttings or division....will make that decision when I dig one up in late summer

pelargonium cuttings in winter

Meldewey,

Fleece will be fine...for now.  If it gets very cold though I would briNg them in or remove them away from the windowsill and extra fleece then. 

I have just potted on rooted cuttings taken in August.  Mild here but they are in unheated conservatory and kept reasonably dry.  

Are There Any Admin on This Site?

Hiya philippa

For me this is the best forum around. The only offensive stuff has been when spammers try to encroach but even that is pretty comtrolled.

Thoughts with you Pentillie.

Hiya Red

They will simply regrow like any other perennial in spring.  They won't revert. Buys as plugs.

First Year for me but I will divide mine in summer.

Just noted Nut's comments which are similar.  

Agree Illumination is a bit of an unknown product re hardyness.  They should be hardy. They are beautiful and very lomg flowering
