geraniums and anenomes

I planted some Japanese anemones  in the first year of the Shady Bank - I knew they'd spread quickly but I needed some colour there quickly.  

This autumn they're going to be moved and reduced - I'll put some in pots to give away - think daughter may be given some 

I think I'd move peonies in the autumn - think there's a thread somewhere on moving them ......... 

As for the geraniums - if they're getting too rampant just chop them back - take some cuttings too to give to people afflicted by tidy gardens

They're short-lived perennials - I'd plant them out now and look forward to some beautiful scented flowers next June - well-drained loam in sun or partial shade.  They will self-seed if you don't dead-head them but they're not invasive.

I've a few Chinese Lantern plants going spare (Physalis alkekengi - the decorative non-edible ones).  Sown this year to flower next.  Would anyone like a few?

That's the problem with tv programmes - they so rarely show you the tears and torment!

One of my newly planted honeysuckles succumbed to mildew earlier on this year and lost all its leaves  - my fault, I let it get too dry under the trees - but with more consistent watering it's growing healthy new shoots.  Don't worry, yours will survive - it's always a bit of a battle

Good morning Verdun -  that sounds like a gorgeous view you have there 

From the forecast it looks as if we're in for a humid day with showers and thunderstorms - I shall try to pop out between them and plant the new additions to the front border and do some deadheading. 

The lawns could do with mowing, but I don't think it's going to be dry enough.  They'll have to wait until later in the week as I'm visiting Aged Ps tomorrow.

Lyn, I remember the photo of when you'd just taken the hedge out - what a transformation! 

Hollows in fig tree branch stumps - a problem?

I agree - take it back - potential site of infection there.
