Go for it Bob

ID needed please on this shrub and advice if possible to be dug out and moved?

Laurus noblis, commonly called bay or bay laurel as hostafan says.

Not to be confused with Prunus laurocerasus, commonly known as laurel or cherry laurel.

Have you added A. viridiflora to the mix Bob?

Viridiflora doesn't grow that well for me but manages to spread its genes around and create some lovely plants

I think I'd prefer a knock on the door. You meet interesting people like that.

Have a look round here Lesley and try and keep control of the order

I find those that those derived from the yellow North American species flower at all sorts of odd times.

That's not much to go on Dahlia. a photo of the whole shrub and a clear photo of the leaves would be good. Is it evergreen, what colour are the flowers and, if you want to move it; how big is it and how long has it been there?

It's not just aquilegias I sow too thickly Bob

Nicotiana are even worse to prick out

Lavender

I wouldn't have them in the spare room yet lb, even if you have to resort to that in midwinter. On another thread someone was talking about using a plastic box as a cold frame. I wouldn't leave anything under that in the long term unless it had vents in the side, but it's something you might consider on wet days so they don't get drowned
