Tree paeonies don't need cutting back DD but you can prune them if they need it. I chop off lumps from time to time.

Thanks all, I'll get on with it. I was very successful with cuttings of Dianthus 'Mrs Sinkins' in the past. To give you an idea of how long ago, Geoff Hamilton showed me how to do it

I've had a bit of a run down time but I'm building up to it again now, even vaguely discussing with OH opening for ngs again. (eventually) He's keen, I know it's not ready.

Fairy, I buried Mrs Sinkins in gravel and it was a success. I must see if there's anything else I can do that with. 

I noticed a very strong looking Persicaria RD emerging from the compost heap as well, must rescue that

Hi all, after years of neglect I've cleaned the glass inside and out, (except one side that will have to wait til the hedge is cut). 

I've asked all the spider to leave, removed their webs, the snails and the dead insects, cleaned out the dirty pots and put them in the shed, removed the mouse nest from under the potting bench and now there's room to grow something.

Am I too late to do cuttings from such as rue, thymes, Persicaria 'Red Dragon' and dianthus?

Tree ID please.

Not a real dark purple, a hint of orange with it

It's a fallacy that you can't move paeonies. We  had a thread on this last year and lots of us had moved them with total success. 

It's true that they don't like being planted to deeply

Got it. Any bulbs will do the pushing but avoid large leafy ones, the leaves will swamp the underplanting. Crocuses are good for spring. and the smaller alliums for summer

It will be the low growing perennials that suffer if anything does, from lack of light.

I though daisies for the bellis.

Not sure I've really grasped what it is your asking CharleyD

Bulbs will push through whatever's there. Everything else needs its own space
