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.

Hello forkers.  Very wet

Not exactly Steve.  No improvements to the system but security issues still addressed until 2020.   Windows 7 is still a worthwhile purchase if you can get it.  I'll check it out.

I think there is a little snobbery re MacBooks.  In fact with all Apple products.  MacBooks look plain in comparison to some of the better Wimdows laptops.  There is a flexibility and user friendliness with windows too And generally price for price better specs.  Ok, virus protection is needed so get it.  Still far, far cheaper than Apple systems.
