      Here it goes, hopefully in order of what I said.. planted everything but 6 of the alliums, the pack of bells and the pieris.. not sure where to put him. All my bulbs have gone in pots except the ones that are in the ground already, plan on getting tidy borders in around the lawn . I planted a few things straight into the edge of the lawn and I'm really regretting it every time Mr Lynd gets the mower or strimmer out.. 20151009_103836[1].jpg 20151009_103932[1].jpg 20151009_110241[1].jpg 20151009_110420[1].jpg 20151009_110527[1].jpg

            It's amazing how fast the time flies when you are I the garden isn't it @Lynd. Glad you had a nice day.
            I'm sure your pots will do you proud :dbgrtmb:. I still haven't emptied my summer bedding planrs out of the pots yet, I need to get a wriggle on with those before it gets cold :thumbsup:

              @Beckie76 I was reluctant to pull a few things up as they were still looking lovely, apparently its staying warmer for the time being, so I wouldn't worry too much. I don't like cold hands though so I done mine out the way..I'm such a wimp!

                @Lynd, I hope the weather does stay warm for a bit longer, it will certainly make the winter feel shorter :dbgrtmb:, I'm not a fan of the winter, I hate the dull cold miserable days the most, I quite like a cold frosty bright day but like you I hate getting cold hands & cold toes is even worse! :hate-shocked:.

                  Yeah @Beckie76 lets hope and for an early Spring! I get terrible cold hands and feet at night, hurts if I knock them even slightly! :( So yeah as long as the sun shines (and its warm) I'm happy.. this time of year I wish I could just hibernate!

                      Today from Wilkinsons....

                      Ranunculus " Pauline Violet "

                      WP_20151014_004.jpg

                      I've got two questions please as I've never grown these before.

                      A) Can they go out now i.e. are they fully hardy ?

                      B) Can I put a few in pots to grow indoors over winter, and if so what sort of treatment do they need ?

                        Helleborus X hybridus 'Molly's White'

                        Told myself to hold off and buy some choice hellebores online, as I like the plain niger a lot, and its cultivars. Also interested in those with thinner leaflets. However, I wasn't listening and this slipped onto a checkout :D

                          I tore out our red Cordyline australis yesterday and started replacing it with other plants.

                          First up, Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus', Helleborus x nigercors 'White Beauty' (one more Hellebore!) and Eucalyptus gunnii to be kept as a coppiced shrub.

                          The Miscanthus and Eucalyptus are to form a fuzzy brighter backdrop to the herbaceous plants.

                            They look good.

                            The Eucalyptus will need regular attention to keep it a shrub. Once established they can easily grow over 4ft a year.

                                I was thinking of hard pruning it at the same time as the sambucus and Buddleja around Feb time?

                                I do need to find a way of composting all of this :D
