Tidying up & bringing in

No sign of winter yet, thank goodness. This time last year we were only 10 days away from a massive dump of snow and seriously sub-zero temperatures. I recall driving up the M1 and seeing -14C on the dashboard display. By contrast, greenhouse temperatures so far are positively balmy.Hope this isn't tempting fate! Don't blame me, he added hastily, if it all goes pear-shaped.

Nevertheless it seemed prudent to start bringing in stuff which has been on the patio all summer. Everything has been cut back a bit and watering has virtually stopped. But they haven't given up on flowering.
I've also got some salad leaves on the go (Radicchio & Chard) and am about to sow some winter lettuce (in November!).

Meanwhile the Wollemi Pine looks entirely happy; the recommendation is to not repot it until the Spring.

That's an extremely clean and tidy greenhouse!

I love your pine; a wonderful plant to have and it really does look like a fossil!

Thansk; it is pretty cool and I'm very pleased to have it.
