I wouldn't choose to move it now, but if it's going to need more space then prepare the bed well with lots of organic matter and take it with a large rootball.  Water it in well.

I'd prefer to leave it until it dies down in the autumn before moving it, but then you'd have to leave it another year before harvesting.  

If it's been moved twice this season only pick very lightly next year.

Good morning KEF & AWB 

The back garden here is pretty sheltered as it's near the bottom of a terraced slope so the fences stop the cold air rolling down - the front is a bit of a frost hollow, but no sign of frost out there either.  It would be interesting to have a garden thermometer in the front garden as well, to see the difference in the temperatures, but ......... it's probably not going to happen - I could spend the money on so many other things.

@ Cnristopher Hodgkiss - if cutting and pasting information from another site rather than posting a link it's accepted good practice to credit the original author or owner of the information.  It also guards against falling foul of copyright laws.  

Daniel (the editor of GW) has explained that cutting and pasting  work which is the original work of other people without attribution will be removed as it is in breach of the Code of Conduct of this board.

I've posted the link to your extract  here  file:///C:/Users/Alison/Downloads/woodpigeon_cop_2010_50746.pdf 

I hope you don't mind me explaining this - don't want your posts to be deleted as has happened in the past.

Good morning all   Hope Panda's not frozen rigid   That being said, it only went down to 6.2C here last night - that was quite warm a fortnight ago!  All that fleecing I did   but better safe than sorry.

Why is the word Royal included in so many of the possible names?  It's hard to choose a name unless one knows the relevance.

Hello folks - home from southern travels - Ma and Pa well  Ma totally confuddled but happy.  Pa looking forward to a Doris Day look-alike entertainer this afternoon   We sat in the conservatory this morning and a big fat woodpigeon came and sat on the fence - Pa lifted an imaginary shotgun, took aim and fired  once a farmer, always a farmer

The fig and gooseberries have been fleeced several times, we've got quite a stiff breeze - now it's all been stuck down with gaffer tape so ought to be ok   Mind you, I bet we don't get a frost - but better safe than sorry.

We've got a lovely sunset going on at the moment 

how long from seed to fruit?
