Hello forkers

Have a good house move hollie........sounds exciting. 

Potted my tulips up yesterday.  They will grow away to plant out exactly when and where I want them later.  Been looking for a variety called Sir Verd but, so far, without success    For me tulips are expendable ....never sure which will perennially appear or give me one show.  Could dig them up but not worth the hassle. 

Not a bad day in prospect

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?
