Great description  bookertoo. I've had a go and never got anywhere. Picked up a free planter a while ago and to my surprise, there it was I would like to grow it in the ground though so thinking about planting it out but don't want it to die

Didn't realise you can have outside tradescantia, love this as an indoor plant, used to grow a lot of it

Great picture of the foxgloves, not got as many as I thought I would have but some are starting to flower Think my sweet rockets are soon to be replaced with Lupins. The heavy rain has finally tipped them over, knew I should have staked them really

No delphs anywhere, a few promising buds though

Dividing Perennials

I'm in first year of  taking cuttings

I'd be tempted to split some of the hardy gereniums. I took some roots cuttings about  5 weeks ago, 2 of them have gone back into the garden and are flowering but the other 2, I've held back and pinched out the flowering tips, to grow them on a bit.

I think they would be alright to split after flowering as well

No hint of any poppies here yet, but seen a few self sown ones growing

Don't have any irises apart from a lone early one that always pops up in a window tray.

Love the new arrival Fairygirl, gorgeous velvety dark colour

I would just cut off the spent flowering stems down until there is another shoot and then that will grow flowers  I have a couple from last year that are looking a bit woody as I didn't really prune them at all last year.......but they are still flowering.

Thanks artjak, I was thinking the same just based on what others have been saying. When you dig them up to check can you just replant them if there not ready?  Can't really remember when they when in, maybe February.They take a while don't they
