Hi Gary. I as going to try and get mine done before the birds got into nesting mode. Not sure that it's best for the bay but that's what I shall do.

If I get there soon enough

I have landgirl, a very large tree in a churchyard in Cambridge.

I think mine would be that big if I didn't cut it back sometimes. It's due for another haircut now. I'd let it go on up but it's only a few feet from the house and totally blocks the view from the landing window.

You're right, it's very easy to tell them apart by smell.

Once you get started there'll be no stopping you.

That's not dim Tracey, that's inexperience.

You'll soon get the hang of it all.

They are bulbs. Snowdrop bulbs dug up after they've flowered. Leaves still on.  Best time to move them, they don't like being dried out and sold in bags in autumn

and once you've got a good clump you can divide them and have hundreds.

Poppy problem on Veg plot

Thank you Zoomer.

Not sure if the raised beds will help though. What do you think? If the poppies are annuals the seeds will be everywhere and if they're perennials they'll come through.

Try this one Tracey. 

Galanthus nivalis are your bog standard snowdrops. 50 for £5. They also have doubles and fancies. But they're not the only supplier. Have a look at others.

Don't do that Tracey. Plant them in the spring with the leaves still on. 

Google 'snowdrops in the green'

That doesn't look like laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) to me.
