Floppy Sedums

Great - thanks all. I will get chopping. They are in the ground, not in pots. Where would vine  weevils be, and what would they look like?!

Floppy Sedums

I have three sedums in their third year. Last year they got too big for themselves and collapsed outwards, leaving a big hole in the middle. From reading up on them a bit, I think they are in too shady a position. They are also in quite soggy soil. There is one on the opposite side of the garden (the sunny side) and it does a lot better. 

This year they are already huge. Should I prune them? If so, how do you do it? Just cut half way down the stem? 

And longer term, should I try to split / move them? I do like them when they flower but don't have much room for them on the sunny side.

I have some tulip and daffodil bulbs that I meant to plant in Autumn but never got round to it. They have been stored in a cupboard since October and some of them have sprouted - do I need to bin them, or should I just get them into a container asap? Thanks 

Planting out seedlings

Okay, it sounds like I'm going to have to find them somewhere to live over the winter. First I've got to get them all planted up though - trip to garden centre tomorrow

I don't have a coldframe or a greenhouse. Perhaps I should ask the neighbour to borrow theirs? All good advice - thank you

Planting out seedlings

Hi all, 

I have ordered a set of mixed perennials from Thompson & Morgan and they arrived this morning, Each seedling is in a very tiny plug. Please can someone advise me (in detail!) what to do next? There is an information leaflet, but as a beginner gardener, I have some uncertainties. 

It says to plant them up into 9cm pots - is that one per seedling, or do I put a few seedlings into one pot? Then how long do I let them grow indoors before I start hardening them off, and when is the latest I should be actually planting them in the ground? And finally, will they all not just die over winter?! Thanks for any help.

I bought a couple of Clematis Montana plants yesterday and haven't put them in yet - if we're supposed to be having an overnight frost this week should I wait before I put them in?

Sickly Camellia

It's not a sycamore - it's some kind of evergreen with fir cones, and it's not directly under the tree, but the tree does take a lot of water as the lawn under it is always very dry. It may have already been moved when we had the garden done in May (I can't quite remember), so maybe it's just a bit stressed (although it was always the least healthy of the two).
