When's the best time to split/move, I need to swap 2 over?

Any time now-before they get too big.

Thanks Geoff, wasn't too sure whether it should be done now whilst they are just starting to grow, but the temps are cold, or when they get bigger but it's warmer. I only planted them last year but they have really taken off!  I'll have a dig if the forecast is reasonable.

Noooooooo they're awake.........

An old table fork.  It delicately teases out tiny plants & is easy to wiggle under the weeds & remove.

About 6c & dry here today, on 1 occasion the sun nearly tried to peep out . Quite a cold wind, but out there for a couple of hours well wrapped up so ok.

Delivery rant!

Thought I'd try some strulch, I've never mulched before & it gets vg reviews. Mr Google says the Telegraph have an offer & £ is better than other places so tried to order. We've ordered quite a few things from them before but get the message “postcode is not in delivery area” & to “please select an address.”  It's my address, it's the only one I have, how can I select another?  I've just e-mailed them & said that my postcode hasn't changed, have they changed their delivery area?

I told them that I live in the Scottish highlands, not the other side of the world, we even have roads, lorries & trains up here. The lorries having brought our past orders from them. 

We do get used to paying extra for deliveries up here from some couriers, but not usually a refusal to deliver!

Aaaahhhhh, that feels better, caalm....

Happy birthday ManicSH, all the best people are born in March - but I expect that you knew that already.  I, too got a potting bench for my birthday 3 days ago, and a trio of obelisks - my hubby's a great garden-pressie buyer too.
