Forester, Yes got your pm and replied.  You can leave your plant outside......it's not tender.  However, I would dig a hole put plant in its pot in and mound soil around the pot to stop rootball freezing.  The top just dies down and will be fine.  Don't water it, cut it or do anything to it until it warms up,in spring.  It will grow vigorously and prob flower next September

You have nothing to gain by plantImg it out now...wait till the spring. When you do plant it make sure you give it good soil that holds some moisture.  Miscanthus  struggle in dry conditions.

what's still flowering in your garden?

Someone has to be in a bad emotional situation to throw him/herself under a train.  And it just takes a moment.  Prob no thought beforehand ...just an impulse.  So very sad and traumatic for family.

A neighbour  I dont know very well .......met on other business....was emotionally overwhelmed with sadness.  His dogs were everything to him and he has lost both,over past 12 months. Quite a young fellow on his own,,partner left him,  but clearly in a bad way. I suggested a call to the Samaritans.......something I was part of couple years back.  My feeling was he was suicidal and I asked him.  popped in over the weekend and he seemed slightly better but today?  Who knows?

It may be considered "selfish" to end ones life in a "messy" way but life can be very bad for some people at times.

Near Penzance I saw a couple of pelargoniums covering a cottage wall.  Looked wonderful.   Trained on wires at least 10' high and 20' across.  Gone now but must have been a few years old.  I did that for couple of years myself, inspired by that....prob reached 4' or so, maybe more rambling up amd over outside.
