@pelly @juliesgarden @anges Thank you girls. I was really lucky today 😊😊I went to Garforth GC with a friend and chose a Rose called "my lovely dad' and a Salvia 'Pink Lips' a very kind member of staff at the other till to where I was came.over and gave me two 50% off receipts. How very kind of her. So I got the Rose and the Savia for £10 instead of £20 🥂♥️♥️

@anges @juliesgarden I just looked to see if they had the same Rose on Amazon. Their price is a whopping £24.99 plus delivery 😳Had I paid full price today it would have cost £10. Bad pricing on Amazon for this Rose.

Have you got your Agapanthus in pots Christine? They like to have their roots constricted. Also, if they were new this year they most likely won’t flower until next year at the earliest 💙💙

midnightgardener

@pelly Ah no, thank you very much for your help as always. So should I pot it up now? Yes that's what I was thinking next year will be it. It can go in the greenhouse over winter as well. In future I should check whether plants should be potted or in the garden. I usually read the instructions. Strange thing is. With my Carmelia it flowered beautifully in a pot. Then I read that it should go in the garden! It didn't flower so well there I found 😕

You are welcome Christine. They can go in the garden, but they need other plants round them to constrict the roots. I didn’t overwinter mine in the greenhouse they were left outside but I think this depends on the variety, some are hardier than others. As for the Camellia, there are a lot of people on here that grow them in pots, but only for so long then they get too big. I have a dwarf one that will be perfectly happy in a pot. Good luck 😍😂
