I've put these lovelies to bed for the winter this afternoon. Felt really sorry for them as I pruned them down as they were still full of flowers and buds! See you again next year lovely flowers. 💜😊💜 #africandaisy #osteospermum #white #purple #tender #tagitgreen

I did the same to my yellow ones today. I felt like I was murdering the poor thing as it was full of flowers 😊

I have left mine out for years and they seem to winter well, must be in a sheltered spot 😊

Oh I don't know what to do with mine now @mrsflowerpot @katgreen I was going to take them out but they are in a raised bed in a sheltered spot so think I might leave them now as still got a few flowers on. Should I cut them down though after they have flowered or should I do it now 😘

No friend went out last night instead so she's no longer going and too far on bus especially as you always want to buy loads to bring home 😁😁😁
