    Under/over water?

    It does always readily take up the litre of water from the bottom. I presume it would do that even if overwatered, would it?

    When you grow perennials from seed, do you wait until fall to plant out?

    If you can store tubers ok in the cellar I cant see why lots of the smaller stuff cant be overwintered in a similar way, maybe just be careful not to let the pots dry out.

    250 box plants (buxus sempervirens) - what to do with them now

    I wonder if a local hedging company would be interested. Might even come out and dig them up, in the autumn, although what mess they would leave behind is a possible problem .:biggrin:

    Dahlia problem

    I have a lot of a particular variety, some are a bare inch out of the ground, others about 2ft and budding. Think it's just a weird year but you simply need to give the tuber time to beef up

    Dichondra silver falls?

    Yes definitely, I know what you mean by the flatness, I'm thinking that can be rectified by something taller in the centre or something like Bacopa draping over the flat top.
