@christopher2... thanks for that info.. i will try cuttings.. they are much faster.. but i never always kow when to take them.. i assume when they are in full shooting or growing mode is when i do most of mine or when i am dead heading..and for splitting my astrantias.. i assume it is just same as splitting primulas and many otehr plants.. i will give that a go.. never thought of that with them

@christopher.. so right.. i am addicted to them after being given some few years back.. my woodland garden is full of them.. but not in flower yet.. still to warm here i think..

What's the weather like in your area?

we had fog to start by cleared by 20am and now very blue skies and hot sunshine again.. gorgeous to be out in.

Primrose

Posted: 04/09/2012 at 13:22

my native yellow british primroses have started flower in teh last few weeks.. think the wet and cold then warm weather of the last month has confused them..

 

i am sat here still praying for some rain for my garden as hard as concrete and my lawn is near on brown all over form lack of water.. water butts are nearly empty and desperately need some.. have not hda any for weeks and weeks..last lot was on a monday night start of schools hols.. and that only just filled the butts up..

LEYLANDII HEDGE REMOVAL

@sylviaf40409.. that is wierd.. when my new neighbours moved in they knew nothin about the dispute i had with my old neighbour over their falling down fence and the need to repair it to stop their dog coming over mine and messing on my lawn.

so they asked their solicitor who informed them that it is only notifiable if the police or courts have been involved.. other than that it is not classed as a reported dispute... if they did it on all arguements and disputes there would be pages and pages of paper work documenting them all...

so we will have to agree to disagree
