Did you sow these this year Kez? I'm not impressed with mine, some have been planted out a couple of months but all I've got is thin foliage. Hardly any growth 😳🧡🧡💛

@midnightgardener you’re very welcome 😊 there wasn’t much to these until the flowers came. Think they take a good while to fill out and even now they’re not very big looking as the foliage is quite strappy

I've heard they can survive winter outside. I suppose it depends on just how mild or severe a winter it is? I might leave a few out next winter as an experiment, as I have loads now!

@jeatacake worth a go since you have an abundance 😛 can’t say the foliage looks very nice but hoping that’ll recover

25w
comment

What surprised me last year was just how fast they grew from seed, with most flowering too 👍 Yeah, the old leaves can make them look a bit tatty, but once they put out lots of new leaves, they'll look fine 🙂

@midnightgardener I was so surprised to see it! Thought it was an old flower head but on closer inspection, it’s a bud 😂 can’t see it flowering but nice that it’s still alive after the poor weather and frosts, as you say. There’s little appeal outside at the moment, I agree! 😝

@jeatacake you have pretty ones that need protecting 😛 these are holding up ok outside. 2 nights of frost and it still opened today and is looking good. Thankfully not much has been affected so far but I doubt it’ll stay that way for long 😔 did the first do much damage to your garden yet?

48w

Thankx Kerry 😊 The frost was thicker this morning. It's blackened the leaves on a few things which are hardy. I know that gazanias are a little hardy, but I had space in the greenhouse, so in they went! 😁

@jeatacake do you have anyone come check on your plants whilst you’re away?

48w
comment
jeatacake

No. Its too much to ask of anyone really. Just need to plan it out well. The real crunch will come next winter (2020/21) as I plan to be away for 3 months, so I'll have to accept that many things won't survive 😕
