The chilli plants in the greenhouse have gone to sleep. So I have them a hard prune, dusted the cuts with cinnamon and covered that in Blue Tack. I also tipped the pots on their sides and scraped off the top layer of packed sharp sand. Hopefully that'll get rid of most of any aphid eggs. A dusting with diatomaceous earth should shred any that hatch. The best JMOA Scotch Bonnet plant is in a fleece bag in the downstairs loo to see if it'll over-winter that way. After a light clean of the greenhouse, I moved the Giant Peruvian Rocoto inside with only 3 undersized pods falling off.

Planted 60 mixed tulips, 10 hyacinth and 20 crocus that a kind neighbour found for me. Very late, but the ground still thinks it's autumn.

Lobelia and Campanula are still in flower out there!  :o
