plant them out Ree.  


I also pot  up several bulbs and plant them out in spring.  This way they go exactly where you want them to be at the time they flower.  


The temperature makes no real difference or any frosts.

That's another plus CraighB....no deadheading on Embers and the like. Don't "impoverish" them......good soil produces better plants.

Coronilla Citrina Newb??   Flowers in winter.  If you can give it a warm spot and good drainage it will light up your winter garden

Dogwoods should really bein the ground chinquest.  They enjoy some moisture and pots are likely to be too dry


so that fence area?  Is that where the concrete is and the bricks?  Can you get someone in to clear that area, dig out the concrete because you have a splendid planting area there for climbers, shrubs and perennials? 

What is your weather like? (2)

Yes I think that's true Bright Star.


salvias have smells, toxins that I think deter pests and diseases. 


I have many salvias here and never known any pest on them.  I have white, yellow, pink, red, blue, purple and more colours on low perennials to 10' statuesque Uliginosas.  Huge variety of salvias
