Hi Rob, move it in the dormant season, leaves off and get as much root as you can. Should be fine

Talkback: Three ways to create a mini-meadow

Poppies, cornflowers and all those bright annuals aren't hay meadow flowers, they're 'weeds' of arable land and need tilled soil. 

See what pansy says about different types of meadow. All our native wild flowers have their own niche in the system, one habitat won't suit all.

I'm off to East Ruston today but I'll see if I can dig up any of the old how to make a meadow threads later on

So what sort of meadow do you want chromebaby?

a grass, hay, perennial meadow

or

a re-sow or allow to seed every year annual mix. 

the two don't mix as pansy says. Perennials like clover will spread and take over a mostly annuals mix but they're OK in grass

If you tell us what you want to achieve, which plants you want to grow, we may be able to help

grasses

I went to a garden this week where this grass was growing as a marginal plant. It looked very good in water. It survived last winter but that wasn't a winter really was it?

I can't keep it but have always put that down to poor dry soil rather than cold

Can anyone identify this bush for me?

I'll go with Mark and Dave
