Doesn't look like Iris to me - but it looks more like something I wouldn't want, if I'm honest...

Yes - plant 'em and see Stephen

Repotting will do it no harm John - it'll help it. Remove all the weeds etc and give it a nice of pot of fresh compost. Many will say use ericaceous compost, but it will be fine just now in multi purpose. You can then decide what to do with it next year after it's flowered. They're better in the ground, but if your soil isn't neutral to acid, you can keep it potted

No chance of that up here Verd. It'll come after New Year if it doesn't come before it  

My rocket is still valiantly flowering and so is the Hellebore I wanted to move months ago. Enjoying the white berries on the Pernettya - or whatever they're calling it now. You probably will have things flowering right through Verd.

I read yesterday that 'someone' is  predicting the worst winter for a gazillion it to keep salt manufacturers in business? 

Made a plan, Hebacious border for next year

I'd definitely get a bit of structure in there for winter, but you could plant up the other border with a bit more greenery to give winter interest, as it's (presumably) nearer your house and therefore the most visible part of the garden from there.

Lucky stamps Lesley...what are they?....

Lucky if you can afford them I think....

Most modern houses are held together with gaffer tape  Lesley. Plus six inch nails and sealant  Stay safe anyway. The road between Fort Bill and Fort Augustus  won't be too clever now- and it's a helluva detour...

Hosta 'throwing shapes' - that dates you love... 

More likely to throw a shoulder out these days...

Wonks - I always felt writing WW was bound to make me do another one and add '' ...
