Verbena bonariensis. Can it be moved?

Posted: 25/10/2013 at 14:18

Afternoon! A friend of mine has several verbena plants close to the edge of her flower boarder and would like to move them further back, does anyone know if it is possible to move them without damaging them and when would be best to do so?

 

many thanks Sara

Two years ago I planted several Peacock Orchid bulbs and very sadly they produced leaves and no flowers...... until this year!

I have a south facing resonably sheltered  small/medium garden in south London and manage to grow things my friends are unable, although no expert my soil seems pretty good and I compost almost everything I can and produce a wonderful earthy compost that gets mixed in to my well draining soil.

it is currently in a pot having been removed from my friends mother's garden when she sold her house. It is going to be lovingly transplanted this weekend, so hopefully it will perk up a little.

 I was given this little plant by the mother of a good friend of mine who informed me it was a Rhododendron, it was such a small plant I have paid little attention to it this year until now, it is starting to flower and all is not as it seems! Could anyone help me with a name for this pretty little thing? Many thanks Sara
