I've had a good day today, managed to get the rudbeckia lifted, divided and moved into new home. Transplanted a sedum, 3 primula, a tea rose, and michaelmas daisies. As well as plant the honeysuckle I had layered last autumn and had taken rather nicely, so it can climb up the lilac tree. The only trauma was digging up asiatic lilies by mistake.
And I hit concrete about 18 inches down in the spot that I was originally going to put the rudbeckia. Arrgh! I spend 15 minutes sweating (and yes there may have been swearing too) in trying to dig that beast up, but gave up in the end as I realised it belongs to a fence post. *blushes*
So moved the crocosmia and planted the rudbeckia there. Mulched the acidic loving plants with an ericaceous compost, and mulched the biennials too. And finished digging in some organic matter and a little blood, bone and fish into the back border.
All in all a good morning's work.
