Is it possible to divide Sweet Williams?

They're easy from seed and you get lorts more than you get in a packet

They're biennials Lena. After they flower, they die. So save or sow the seed

Actinidia damage

More damage is done by minus 1 degree in late April than by minus 10 in January. But generally it's only superficial and the plant is fine.

They look like sweet williams. There may be a lot of plants there, it which case you could spread them out a bit. It's getting a bit late to interfere really, they'll be coming up to flower soon and they may flop over and you'll lose the best display. I don't think they divide and that would surely upset them anyway

Two plant IDs please

2 could be some sort of campanula, one of the tallish ones, C. trachelium maybe.

I agree, viscious stuff. Poor show in the shade as well

Leather jackets more likely. Photograph one before you squidge it.

The dangers of gardening

Dangerous place out there.

I think my worst was digging up a plant and disturbing a wasp nest. A wasp came  at my face and stung me on the eyelid. Agony. It left the sting behind and OH pulled it out with a tool from the workshop, also unpleasant. I couldn't see for days, looked like I'd been in a fight.

I hope yours sorts out quickly Minos. and all other current sufferers

Is this the shrub that's a cultivar of a spirea? Has it got more than one stem coming out of the ground?
