Sorry about the plants you lost ...
I lost a pink Coreopsis, but I always loose those every time I buy one.
I also have a Euonymus which looks dead. It's a free-standing one but the ones growing up trellises are fine.
I lost a Lovely Euphorbia White Swan in a pot but I have a cutting of it so I'm happy.
Solanum crispum is also gone :( but I find those difficult to overwinter anyway.

Have a look at a recent blog by ange2 ... it's interesting to see what plants folk have lost. Hebes seem to be a main loss for some.

Ams, I discovered today that a Hosta 'Sum and Substance' has rotted off in the pot, despite being kept in the unheated greenhouse over Winter. I shall replace it as it has lovely lime green leaves.

Shirley that’s a shame, glad you’ll be replacing it.

I lost a Hebe too but the rest seem to be OK so far.

Ams, I bought a new Hosta 'Wide Brim' which has large variegated leaves. I shall pot it up tomorrow.

Shirley- send me a picture when potted up. I’ve just sprayed my hostas with a garlic concoction - hoping it will keep snails at bay.

Ams, will do! It seems that coffee grounds are having no effect against the slugs and snails this year, not in my pots anyway ... :o(
