Bank holiday today, Pentecost Monday. Looked at English calender and it's next Monday. Why? It's meant to be for Whitsun or Pentecost? Strange.

I thought tea bags had some sort of plasticy stuff in them to stop the bag disintegrating when boiling water was poured on them. I don't bother composting them any more.

Do you have the red lily in Briton/Scotland?

I don't really know the best answer, but I leave mine. I suppose, if you aren't happy with where they are, you could pot them up and grow them on a bit and replant them.
