Thank you Sue

I'll think I'll do it tomorrow when weather is better.

Thank you Invicta2

 I,ll dig as wide and as deep as I can I assume the ground will be quite hard in November but its quite damp and shady where it is a the moment.

Should I mix any feed in the new planting hole or hold off until growing season assuming I've haven't of damaged or killed it by then ?

can anyone please advise me when is the best time to move my Magnolia shrub I had it east facing in semi shade for 2 years and its never flowered.

I've read it will do better west facing and in slightly acid soil. I was thinking of moving it tomorrow?????

Yes I can take them all off the hooks I could stick them in the fish pond I have taken a few lobelia out and planted in the ground it was thick with roots.I will water again in the morning before I go to work and again in the evening. I should of put some of that gel stuff in them. But thanks for your advice.

I really need some advice on my hanging baskets I think I may have over loaded them, there really wilted and dry I know we've had quite a lot of wind over the last couple of days and I have been watering them in late evening but when I try to water it just runs straight off and the compost is dry.
