We covered ours with the false plastic grass, bought a metre from the garden centre and cut it to size.

Hi I planted a white hibiscus in the spring and its now flowering lovely. Unfortunately it needs to be moved (I wouldn't move whilst its flowering) but reading up apparently moving them means they don't survive?

Just wondered if anyone has successfully moved one and if so when...

I have 6 large Kniphofia Caulescens in a group and they have produced great pokers until this year? All of them have new growth in the middle but no poker stems.

Do they rest for a year?

Each year I leave them to over winter with no care except in spring taking off the spent leaves from the wooded stems....

Any advice would be greatly received

I planted a peony 3 years ago and it has never flowered. I believe if you plant too deep they never will.

Is it worth trying to move as led to believe they hardly ever survive or will it eventually flower?
