Dividing Geranium Phaeum Now?

Super, thank you, I'll crack on this week 

Dividing Geranium Phaeum Now?

Posted: 18/09/2015 at 15:20

I've had a Google but couldn't really find much feedback.  I have a large clump I want to divide and replant around the garden.  The RHS says do it in Spring but would I be OK now?  I'd like to do it now to give it a bit of time to recover so it looks good next year.

Is lawn edging popular?

I have some Everedge which I shipped to Denmark from the UK a few years ago.  Still haven't got around to finishing it off as it was actually quite a faff to install.  There's only so much huffing and puffing I can take from hubby....

Seed saving

I got over excited and ended up with bazillions of dahlias (didn't realise how easy they are from seed!). My new rule is to plant in a 12 module seed tray and aim for 7 - 10 good plants.  I am busy sowing now for next year.  I find it more rewarding / succesful than sowing in the spring.

I'm having a similar problem with my Bishops Children, so very interested in any feedback.

Keep it or compost it? Plant ID

Thank you, I have now googled it and apparently it grows abundantly here in Denmark!  I think it is pretty so I shall keep it until it starts to set seed then pull it out.

I thought the leaves on this looked nice when it first appeared so I spared it from being weeded and it now has a nice flower.  What is it please?

I know it as belle de nuit, my French husband brought me back some seeds from his Father's garden, they were very easy to germinate. I have them in yellow and white as well as pink.

Snap to the lupins, I have attempted growing cuttings a couple of times but they failed.  I really need to try again.

Fantastic! I know the feeling, my family look at me like I am a total loon when I excitedly show them freshly germinated seeds.  I am turning in to a bit of a seedaholic now....... Be warned, that's the next stage......
