does any one grow Watsonia pillansii? how hardy and should I lift it and keep it in the greenhouse overwinter?

I found it had been bought without any thought of where it was to go and if it is suitable for my garden. Now why did I do that?

Oh yes Burton Agnes plant fair at Burton Agnes east Yorkshire. near to Bridlington. it is on again tomorrow and I am manning the HPS stall across lunch time.
lots of interesting stalls if you are in the area.



Never grown it, but there is a big patch of it on a south facing walled garden at Powys Castle Gardens. they grow a lot of tenderish things in that area. Think it is probably a bit too tender for us here. Would imagine it would need Conservatory over winter in your area.

thanks for that. so it will not go directly in my border but into a pot.

that's the trouble with impulse buys and it was only £2.50 and I couldn't resist.

I was very good today and only bought a polemonium and a hosta 'lime and lemon'
