Bought some bare root hedging in december, due to frost didn't get chance to plant them so put them in buckets of lose compost. Do i need to wait for the ground to thaw completly ?

Hi Guest yes wait until the ground is completely thawed, though you may well be surprised to find it is only the top couple of inches that are frozen.

Yes - never plant in frozen ground, but you shouldn't have long to wait, looks like temperatures are set to rise to near average by this weekend.

Oh Bamboo - please change your picture back to a cheerful one! That scene is making me feel c-c-c-old!

I love that picture - makes the trees and bushes all beautiful again, just in a different way from summer. I'll change it in a while!

OK......I will remind you though! :-(((

I'm with Barbara no wintery avatars...

I can bear a wintry avatar now - it'll soon be spring, so not far to go till I change it! Have you noticed the increase in daylight at the end of the day already? It's not dark here till 4.20, later on a bright day, and only 3 weeks ago it was pitch dark by 3.50p.m. Apologies for tagging this onto your question guest

Soon be spring... who are you kidding Bamboo... A9 closed again - snow still here...

might be the difference between your end of the country and mine, then, and possibly age! Six weeks left till beginning of March (hooray!) and that, at my age, will whip by in what will seem like 3 weeks - and March here in the South is a huge improvement on February, usually, but perhaps not up there, MG

No Bamboo it will still be cold with the possibility of snow right through March - though it could be mild... we just don't know!
