That's bloody awful KT53. please keep us informed if it helps you.  Wish you well too.  The powers that be should be informed of their ineptitude.

It's been lovely afternoon.  Rigged up a temporary poly tunnel to house the rest of my tender perennials today. Now all cosy and dry.  Few more wallflowers planted out too.

Yes Ron but each tuber needs a stem.  I separate tubers by pulling stems apart. you can pot them up now using dry compost. 

DOGWOOD

For me dogwoods respond to a good feed in spring esp if cut back hard.  

Those spindly branches should be cut hard back too.  Summer moisture is important too.

I have iPad and a desktop computer.  For heavy work, for "typing" for printing photos, etc. etc I use desktop.  The iPad is a convenient "fun" machine.  I have considered a laptop to replace my desktop.....getting rid of all those wires, etc.  However, desktop is reassuringly solid and I would miss it.  All in one machines are tempting too.  Prob the choice I will make

remind me please

Sheltered from too much wind and rain and keep an eye out for slugs etc under those pots. They are pretty tough plants really

lupins, if not hardened off by being outside, can succumb to hard frosts.  I have established lupine in the garden and they will be totally fine.  I also buy young plants in early spring, pot them on but protect from frost....

Hiya rosemummy

Stocks should be planted out now. Esp if they are big.  Mine are currently being transplanted from veg patch to their winter positions to flower over winter and early spring.

the rest of your plants, although hardy, will not benefit now from being planted out....in fact they could suffer from pests and winter issues.  Plant them out in spring if you have space in your gh.
