This sounds very well thought out and I can't think of anything else that you should or could do. Hopefully you'll put this Amazonian giant in its new home and stand back...

Oh yes it is my baby and one of the first plants i would of planted apart from some bulbs at weekend.

Gardening was my Ex's domane but i have just got into it and learning even the digging is fun for now!!!

Hi i hope i have done this right for the gunnera manicate.

I have dug a hole twice the size of the pot it is in, the clay at the bottom of the hole i have broken up a little then put a layer of manure in the hole followed by some top soil mixed with more manure.

Then i filled the hole with water.

Next maybe tomorrow i plan on puting compost and the plant in the hole with the top of the plant pot soil being level with the new hole and bedding in and more manure on top plus tons of water.

Would this be okay?

Planting out

Hi i want to plant out two tree saps about three feet tall and my gunnera manicate but a freind says it is too hot and they will burn ion this heat.

I was thinking of planting them out in the evening when the heat is lower and put tons of water on them and manure in the hole with compost too.

also moving some other shrubs form one part of the garden to another part.

Ideas please Thank you

Does the plant need shelter or can it be a little exposed to the wind?

Does the plant need proctectinmg from the wind? 

Can it go to one edge of the garden where there is a fence on one side  about 6 feet away from the plant

or does it have to be  where it is proctected on three sides with the same distance away from the fence and the house and green house?

I do hope this makes sense

Hi I have a gunnera manicate still in its pot as i bought it late last year and now i want to plant it out in the garden i know you can plant them in damp bog garden which i have as it is a lot of clay but there is a bit where it floods every now again for a few days at a time could i plant it there?

Also it says you can split it how do i know when it is ready to be split?

Thank you
