pelargonium cuttings in winter

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 19:54

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

Standard red robin - poorly!!!

Spring would be best I think.  Most other nematodes are used when it's warmer.

 

Good luck jess

Everedge steel lawn edging?

Posted: 15/01/2014 at 08:27

I made a concrete edge around my lawns.  It looks discreet, prevents grass creeping into the borders and .....unless I alter the lawn edge shape...is permanent.  It is wide enough to stand on but only about 4" wide. 

Plastic edges are useless. ,metal edges are too thin.

Mizzle this morning.  Then rain then sunny later this pm.....so most everything.

My imagination perhaps but mornings do seem to be getting lighter earlier already.  

If the wet weather continues like this I will lay a sheet of polythene over my bare veg patch in February.  However, I think we will have ...by the law of averages......a good dry spell soon.

Have good day everyone
