Beautiful plant but £15... that's a tad expensive.

Other Perenials that will split like Astrantia

I split a dwarf Veronica before planting today. Don't know if I did right or not. Time will tell. Was contemplating doing the same to a geranium but chickened out of that one.

I have a group of three euphorbia and they are all not looking well. Any ideas please. I have a single one growing about four metres away(same conditions) and it's very healthy. I hope you can enlarge the photo cos I can't seem to manage it.

The garden so far

That's just gorgeous..it really is.

What are the spikey blue flowers on the left. They're really pretty.

Celandine problem

What about the roundup gel which is applied to the actual plant and doesn't affect others. I have used this on dandelions and it works very well.

Need help to solve my overgrown garden problem

Congratulations on your new house...and garden. The one thing I would suggest is patience. Rome wasn't built in a day or one growing season. I agree with AuntyRach and others about having a good think about what you want from your garden. Personally I would get rid of the trees especially that ugly thing in the last pic. There are just too many for such a space.  That along with sorting the grass and weeding between the paving will make a huge difference. If you want some colour over the summer plant up a few pots.

Then sit back and observe.

Where do I want my coffee in the morning or my glass of wine in the evening. Choose a nice spot with plenty of light for your veg. Take notes of what gets the sun in the morning/afternoon/evening/all day. This makes things so much easier when deciding what to do with a particular space. Maybe knock up a couple of raised beds for the veg over the winter.

Taking your time, planning and thinking about what you want avoids what can be expensive mistakes.

Good luck, enjoy and let us know how it goes

Better not be a pansy Dimwit or I'll be having words with T&M

Yip. That's what my Geum looks like. The echinacea leaves are a bit similar to the bottom right plant. Ever so slightly more elongated but don't have that scalloped edge. I'm still saying scabiosa.

I got this pack. Cracking little plants. I would agree with the id's but for front right. My scabiosa looks like that. The Geums are hairy leaved while the scabiosa are smooth so you can tell that way.
