I generally add 2 weeks to any timings. At a 1000ft up in Lancashire, there is a noticeable difference in flowering time. My sedum spectacle fir example is only just starting to go pink.

Thanks all, I think I will move mine too. It's a good sized plant, so I can try a few different locations.

Have great time, Dean. If only I was off somewhere exotic instead of back to work next week.

Orange flowers, but not sure of variety. I have just spotted a GW blog which said to split them in spring. That will give me the opportunity to see if it is the location.

Would appreciate any advice you could give me on the aftercare of geums. Had very few flowers this year and would like to improve the performance for next year. Thanks

Overcast on our bit of the Pennines. Over the hill from us is compost factory, smelly when the wind is our direction, which fortunately is not very often. The vehicles going over to it can be very smelly, if you get stuck behind one! There's a house quite close to it.must be awful for them. wrong location for it really, who said anything about brown envelopes!!!!
