Thank you Sanatic and RS....

RS - I have had the Dasy loosely bound, but we are getting some nice sunshine and temps during the day at the moment, so I am trying to make the most of it, and get that Dasy warmed up at the core ... icon_sunny

Well done on your garden. If you can post photos of it looking that great after the winter we just had then you must be doing something right! Sure makes a change from the winter carnage photos we've been seeing recently.

Nice pics, everything looks perfect. Better than here in the north west, we had minus 4 again last night and still got quite a few of these temps to come :evil:

Gorgeous pics Simba. It's been a chilly couple of nights. I've had -1.7 and -3.3 which as burnt the ends of palm leaves on the few palms I took out of the garage. Yours all still look great. Fantastic stuff.

Thank you very much for the compliments everyone.. :D

We had a minus 4.8 last night, which has snapped me back to reality a bit... :?
I was getting a wee bit ahead of myself, but having said that, all of my plants have experienced far worse than that this year and thankfully I still seem to have a good collection.

I am really excited about this coming year.... icon_thumleft
