Moving rhododendron

I agree - after flowering - but you can start preparing the site where it's going now - a decent sized area with lots of added organic matter dug in, then when you dig it up with a huge rootball and plant it and water it in well it will hardly notice it's been moved.

Good luck and mind your back!

There was that slot that Carol K did last year with a young family just starting their garden ... I wonder if there'll be something similar this year?

What is your weather like?

It was cold and misty here in Norfolk earlier too, but the mist has cleared, the sun is shining and the sky is blue

Yesterday was dull cold and overcast all day so this is lovely.

Hurrah!  the mist has cleared and the sun is streaming in through the windows.  It's going to be a glorious morning.

Coffee anyone?

Nut, the sun is shining and the birds are singing - It's the perfect morning for moving a rose bush

Please help me think outside the box!

Agrostis nebulosi is a half-hardy annual so shouldn't be difficult to control

If I was into growing seeds as an activity in itself, rather than to fill my garden - I think I'd go for a whole load of different small alpines - that way I'd have room to create beautiful little alpine gardens in containers - think that would be fascinating.

Have a look at the Chiltern catalogue - loads of alpines there
