hellibor dilema

Thanks for your advice.  Yes,  I can take part of it and leave most behind.  I'll expect the 'sulks' during the summer and hopefully it will rally round for next spring.

 

 

hellibor dilema

HI,  I'm moving from England to Scotland in 3 weeks time.  I've a hellebore in my garden and I'd like to take it with me.  It's flowering at the moment and I thought it best to leave it as long as possible before doing anything.  I'd appreciate some advice as I'm not sure how best to deal with it.  There will not be much room for a plant with lots of foliage.  Is it possible to divide it (how do I do this) and cut the foliage  down for the journey.  Will it recover from that kind of treatment?

I'm looking at a possible move to Ayrshire in Scotland from Hereford.  I'm aware that the temperature tends to be lower up there and that the summers are a bit shorter, but I'm not sure how the change of location will really effect my gardening.  I love growing herbs and am hoping that I will still be able to do this successfully.  Can anyone offer some advice as to what differences I can expect and any problems I might encounter.

Thanks in anticipation

using ash from wood and brickettes in the garden

Posted: 07/04/2013 at 08:32

I have been using a new multi fuel burner this winter and I'm wondering if I can put the ash from it onto the garden.  I burn both wood and brickettes.  I've been told that the ash from wood is good for the garden.  Is this true and does it equally apply to the ash from burning brickets.  What's the best way to use it?  Can anyone help with this?
