    I've planted up spare 5-inch terracotta pots with Hyacinths and miniature Narcissi. They are intended to be sold to raise funds for the charity where I volunteer.
    Where should I store the pots for the Winter? Could be outdoors, in the cold greenhouse, or in the house.
    They'll be taken in to be sold as and when they look good next year.


    I've also planted sprouting root ginger. They are in the greenhouse but don't look happy. Would they do better in the house do you think?

    Ginger in the house definitely if it's the supermarket variety. Mine sits on a windowsill above a radiator and seems quite happy
    I've some Japanese Ginger which is supposed to be quite hardy but as this is its first winter, I'm also keeping it indoors this time around
    Why am I in this handcart and where are we going ?

    I'd opt for outdoors in a sheltered spot, reason being you want flowers and not forced leaves which could happen if too warm, even in cold greenhouse on a sunny day


    Plus slight possibility of aphids if warm, not much likelihood outdoors overwinter


    Once buds are showing and nearly ready then you could move into cold greenhouse just for a bit of a boost prior to sale
