As it happens :) I was doing Photo & Measure today, before ex-Nadine arrived ...

These were both 1L plants in the Spring:

The reasons for digging up early are not frost or weather related. I'm not going into any details at the moment but i am getting shot of all the plants that i have bought over the last 4 years.

Mine stay out until winter arrives, or as close as I dare, to it. Maurelii and 'Montbeliardii' were dug out on 3rd December last year.

Here is Maurelii

and here Montbeliardii

i've restocked and there coming along nicely, I feed with Doff tomato feed and they react with serious growth. Ill get some pics when I get chance. Im hoping to keep growing over the winter rather than store dry this year, as I lost loads. Not due to the method not working but a winter that didn't end. icon_bigsmurf
