Hiya again folks :)
What's looking good in Jan 2019? Well, it is my compost mulch :)
I have sourced very cheap, steaming, black, rich compost and have been mulching thickly with it over the past two days and the borders look so much better for it.

Oh dear Verdun, I`m all behind with my mulching this winter - so much else going on;) Maybe if you post a photo or two of your lovely neat borders, it will give me sufficient incentive to get back to a bit of graft :pics:

Not the easiest to grow outdoors in the UK but if it's in a pot you can at least move it if it is going to get arctic. Give it a couple of weeks and it will look fantastic..............

@longk .. that flower reminds me of Abutilon kentish belle, but I can`t believe it`s actually flowering outside here in January... where do you manage to find all these miraculous plants ?

Grown in a pot against the house where it is a few degrees warmer. That way if it does get really cold it can be moved undercover.
Cost me £1.50 a couple of years ago in the bargain bin at a local GC - in the houseplant section!!!
