Thanks Fg

Lyn - I think my achilleas can't have liked my front garden - funny, their cousin the yarrow just loves my front lawn

Hmmm, what can I buy to put in their place ? ...........   I've had my eye on a rather nice verbascum, and I'll be going past Woottens on Friday 

Panda, yes that's Wonky nearly three years ago - scrubs up quite well doesn't she?

Have other people's achillea's sprung to life yet?  Neither of mine have put in an appearance ..........

Oh yest, there it is

Like your style Wonky - get the council to do your research and development for you - it's what you pay your council tax for

KEF -  I've got a hat you can borrow

 Oh, I don't think it's going to appear - Wonky can describe it to you ... it's big and pink

I suppose we should remember that some ferns are only just waking up after the winter - certainly some of mine are only just emerging whereas others are quite luxuriant already

I agree, don't worry about it - we all make typing errors - you can only edit while no one has posted after you so often you don't see your blooper until it's too late. 

C'est la vie - it's the gardening that's important

Sad - but these things happen - it could have been for one of many reasons - sounds like three fledged successfully.

Remove the corpses - the parents may have a second brood in there.

Fingers crossed

I would re-pot it now, and then when the weather warms up it can go outside in the sunshine (but not scorching) for the summer - keep the compost a bit on the dry side, and keep an eye out for snails - they love them.  Then in the autumn bring it in and put it on a warm light windowsill and wait. 

I wouldn't split it - it's probably got three little plants in the pot to produce a plant that is balanced all around.  splitting it would give you three lopsided plants.

Once you've re-potted it I'd stop feeding it for a while - the compost should have enough feed in it for a few months.

They're great to take cuttings from, so when it starts to get too big you can take some stems off and use them as cuttings - three to a pot, back to back so you get a well balanced pot
