Fan shaped Day Lilly Plants

They are hardto difg out but that's what has to happen. I've got a big lump of rarely flowering daylily to exterminate. I'll wait til the rains start and the ground softens. You can replant the bulbs and the rest of the plants, they won't mind.

Could someone help me identify these droppings?

I'd say hedgehog, though haven't seen any for years.. Time to keep a slightly less tidy garden and maybe it will stay and eat your slugs. No pellets, you don't want to kill the hedgehog

My rugosas were sown around this time of year and germinated in 2 or 3 weeks. 

what what yours?

tree paeonies, eryngiums, aconitums, lots of umbellifers (or whatever we call them now) and ranunculaceae, primula, the sooner and fresher the better. Arisaemas, roscoeas, roses, I've has rosa rugosa flowering a year after an autumn sowing

Some will germinate very quickly if they're fresh, others will germinate in spring. None of then need heat and some will be inhibited by heat.

Aym, loads of hardy perennials can be sown now, don't get withdrawal symptoms. Sow some astrantia, aquilegia, anything hardy.

Plant relocation

They're said not to like being moved but I would think after only 8 months you'd get away with it. Give the ground a thorough soaking round it so you can get it root intact and it will hardly know what happened. It will be settled before winter. It might be better to wait til spring but the root will be bigger by then

Identification please
