    Finally got our big Yucca faxoniana planted, this had been hanging about in a pot on the patio since last year.

        Certainly hope so, the pot was packed with roots, which should now enjoy the free root run!

        Are you bringing any tender stuff outside yet or removing protection?

          Starting to get some outside no, and have the greenhouse doors open. Its always a tricky balance at this time of year. Pretty much everything we have in the greenhouses/large shed are hardy enough for the current temperatures but theres that risk of frost.

          Generally we like to get things out early rather than molly coddle for too long.
