remove bag now and wait for roots to appear at bottom of pot.  Then repot.  By mid summer it will have filled that pot so you pot on again or plant out

well done 

What memories do your plants bring back?

If I may post again, many plants here have sentimental value, even a rose (most know I'm not too keen) is planted as a reminder of my mum.  Many plants for private memories 

Where else can we mix passion and sentiment?

Emmapynn, no they will not survive a normal winter outside in most places

since you are (wisely) looking ahead, take cuttings in summer of both plants.  You can then have plants for next year.

Ah! Dove.  loveable though they are they are greedy .
