    Anything, as long as it is moist. It is also a martyr to slugs.

    Thanks punkdoc, Intend to sink in the garden in plastic bags with little drainage for just learnt recently they are marginals,I have lost so many in the past, I was thinking of aquatic soil, but will try adding coir to garden soil. K 9.

    Thanks for for your tips verdun,I always had them in pots and lost them over winter, the nursery insisted they were hardy,but were marginals, I dont have a greenhouse thats why I thought I would sink in garden with moisture retentive coir added, just a thought, I will put half in the car port and see what happens.  K 9.
