Nonsense Edd.  It will be much colder though on Saturday.  From 15 or so now to about 7 degrees during the day so that will be a real shock.  Blizzards down here?  No way 

Barney here did very little.  Now it is calm but winds never more than fresh to strong.

I guess it was grafted then Sandyboy.

your choice may want it to sucker to create a copse. That would look good if your garden is big

You will get different opinions but I put them in compost heap and around densely planted shrubs where leaves wont blow around.  

Ideally bag them up and leave them for a year but it's not what I do

My lemon tree has surface compost removed and replaced with dried manure.  I add fish blood and bone in spring.  I spray with seaweed twice or so during growing season plus epsom salts esrly in spring.  Works for me. 

Currently, in garage for winter

Plant Large Plug plants?

Me too Silverlght.....pot them on in slightly larger pots, water them and leave in gh over winter.  I would pot them on again in early spring.  You will be amazed at how fast  most perennials in pots grow in spring.  I plant out when plants fill af least  1 litre but preferably 3 litre pots.
