Mark, not ideal for pots.  Ironically, I think your plants have dried out.....mpc is not ideal for holding onto moisture.  A change to john innes with some grit would be better Mark 

What new plants will you be trying?

pp, if its a sunny wall how about prostrate rosemary?  Some lovely  bright blue flowered varieties and evergreen foliage.

Lyn, I'm sure you will plant your anemones in appropriate places. A group of them though could look sparse in winter...?   Your newly acquired grassss will add a new dimension to your garden.  I have another grass coming myself but conscious of the need not to go overboard with them.....I have quite a few now

Having trouble defending the "experts" Punkdoc ?    I will be illustrating my feelings about them as time goes on.  There will be plenty of opportunities to cite their contrasting claims 

Silly question of the day!

the Press got its snippets from someone.  If I said it would be freezing would the Press publish it as fact ? 

I can't sleep because I'm worried that I'll go to plant prison for murder.

Leave it now Sam and see what happens.  It should have been cut back at time of moving and cutting back now will not make any difference.  If it grows in spring prune it back then

those "experts" are at it yet again.  Now we will have the coldest winter for 5 years.  

Well.....we might.  We might not. 

The"experts" simply DO NOT KNOW.  

As with most everything these sillee billees have a believing audience
