    Coriander

    UPDATE Well the coriander is faring well. I'm covering it at night and then exposing it to all this lovely sunshine we've been having during the day. So far so good. :dbgrtmb:

    Creating winter interest.

    My summer hanging baskets are now well and truly dead ( apart from the ivy of course). Is there anything I can put in them to see them through the winter?G.

    Is it worth saving my Gladiolus bulbs?

    Here in the Cotswolds it gets disproportionately cold and they survive. The only ones that I ever needed to lift was Gladiolus murielae (Acidanthera).

    I've only grown Thallia of this type, I'm not really a fuchsia grower as such.But I usually take cuttings in spring from new growth, or a couple of months ago, to overwinter. Usually try to find a non flowering shoot with the leaves in threes around the stem. You get a bushier plant that way.
