I've just split mine up. They are best split while the new shoots are small.
I had one. I used to forget it was there and get soaked at regular intervals.
The animals worked it out and went around it.
Mrs Garden, the daisy is a margeurite. They are perennial but frost tender. You can easily strike cuttings to make more plants, and then cut it down, it will then shoot again . It probably will need as feed as well.
I spread snowdrops in a broad band along the edges of paths. Spaced about 3 inch apart, they soon thicken up to give a continous white stripe. Odd ones pushed between perennials will thicken into a clump in two or three years.
The old leaf petioles do point downwards, and the leaves brown. I leave the leaf stem (petiole) and cut off the dead leaf end bit. When the frosts are past, repot it or plant in a sunny position and give it a good feed and it should flower this year. Save the seed as the plant will then die.
Assuming it is now well rotted, it will be fine for potatoes.
I had some old sweet pea seeds that I found in a jar in the garage. I put them on some damp kitchen paper and then as they started to germinate, I put the seed with a tiny shoot about an inch deep in compost. I had about 80% germination with no wasted compost.
You could put a bell on the cats collar to warn the birds.
Night everyone. Work tomorrow
