I would move it now. Try and take as much root as possible. I always add in lots of feed into the planting hole to help it along.
The Blackbirds seem to appreciate my Redcurrant fruits!
"We have thought about fencing just don't want to hurt her feelings really, it's such a shame but at the same time she should have thought about us."
That is the answer - a new fence.
I would add the shed to the left and level the ground as it will fool the eye that the land is more level than it is. Adding more height to the left makes the garden look top heavy and focus on those houses to the left instead of a internal feature.
I would add trees/shrubs around the fence to add height to disguise the differences in height. Tall plants where the fence is lowest and smaller ones where it is highest. I would also move the shed to the top left hand side to get it out of the way.
I also find Lupins grow so fast in spring/summer that it outgrows any slug damage very quickly. A small amount of slug pellets would help in early spring but only if you want to.
I would put up a 6ft fence as well. All plants planted will take years to give a really good privacy belt and a fence will really help.
Yip, Celmisia spectablis. Lovely plant that is difficult to find - I have been on the out look for it!
"The point is to scatter thinly around all susceptible plants and not to turn the earth blue."
LOL. I have seen people literally cover the top layer of pots with the blue pellets.
I thought the trend for raised beds was to make an area look nice? Rendered ones tend to incorporate seating and you can see plants better by being at eye level. It is more a garden room trend.
Diluted Chlorine bleach will kill it.
