Looking for recommendations for the best plant Bible or Bibles. I'd be rude to turn down the offer of any book you'd like from your children.

Can tomatoe diseases be transmitted to roses? (may be a stupid question)

In short Sandra no. I'd get them planted though as soon as possible.

Identify please

I don't think it's Carex, it reminds me of sisyrinchium.

groundcover plants as replacement for lawn

Posted: 19/11/2016 at 18:28

Michael welcome. You need to find out what your soil is like firstly. It sounds like it is very shaded and poorly drained for moss to thrive. Planning a new lawn with what you have in mind means you have to create the conditions for the plants you wish to replace your lawn. Chamomile is often used as a substitute for grass, hard wearing and scented with nice white daisy like flowers. There is a non flowering variety which is normally used for lawns. If you go to the RHS website and search chamomile there is guidance there on growing one.

Moving perennials

I'd do it now then cut back after moving. Cutting back encourages root growth and you're unlikely to see freezing temps in London for a while yet.

Squirrels, cover them with chicken wire.

Lily bulbs

Loana, I'd plant them. They're hardy but can sometimes rot so in the GH would be fine and you can plant out in spring. Or just store them till spring.
