I think you are spot on Zoomer 

Perennials in 9 cm pots.....go for 'em now

Andy,,plants in too large pots will sulk. pot on into slightly larger ones to encourage rapid and better growth.

try it for yourself....put a 9 cm plant into a 3 litre pot and another in multiple pots and see the difference come spring.

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted a reply earlier Victoria but the tech issues seem to have been at work

no, not GW ones.  Not letterbox size. Nice clump of 100 for about £12 

New plants

Pot on Maureen no matter how hardy they are.     Much better plants will result 

has anyone underplanted bamboo?

Perennials for me......hardy geranium and Rozanne for its vigour and long flowering.  

Or Ceratostigma willmottianum.......deciduous shrubby with blue summer flowers

giant nepeta....almost evergreen and blue flowers for spring and summer

or how about white Gauras?  Or Agastaches?

(Whisper it Philippa....I DID get a sneaky feel before buying)

some absolutely rotten quality composts last year.....Asda's own was awful, for example.

would never use any bought mpc for permament planting tho

Got snowdrops in the green over a week ago.  With flowers too.  Planted out and they look great now....flowers recovered beautifully. from ordering to delivery was a matter of days 

Salvia Turkestanica

Don't grow this now but I used to let it grow but not flower in its first year and then, for me anyway, it would flower for a couple of years.  best as an biennial I think....viz., to grow for flowering the following year.  so many better salvias available 

HELLO FORKERS!
