I have had some plants in the garden for a few years. Although i have fed and mulched each year i just cannot get a good display of flowers.(white and pink).They are planted in full sun,exposed borders. I am know wondering if they would be better in the shade or a damp border.Any thoughts please.

My agapanthus are pot bound and need to be removed from the pot and split into smaller plants.Does anyone know how to remove the plant without having to break the pot first.

What is your weather like?

It is a wonderful warm sunny day here in north cornwall. Today i have pruned all the hydrangeas ( grow very well in the west).Also it was the first cut of the lawn.

So NIGEL has a new playmate.I look forward to seeing here grow during the summer. My retriever went on a long walk today so i had a couple of hours in the garden without any doggy help.A dog and a garden go together. I dont mind if an extra hole is dug.I just fill it in. As for the teeth pruning,it will grow again.Just a bit smaller. Although it is still cold in north Cornwall (.As i look out of the window the rain has turned to hale stones),i  have planted snowdrops (in the green) and continued to repot the greenhouse plants that i over wintered,

Although i have been gardening for about 50 years i always am inspired when i watch gardeners world with Monty and Nigel.I look forward to next week and more idea.
