Wallflowers

Artjak,  I initially plant them 15" or so apart in veg patch and now plant them out with good undamaged rootball about 10 to 12" apart

Saw some healthy looking bare root wallflowers in my local Wyevale GC today.   

Started to move mine growing in veg patch to their final positions today.....they already are large now. Like to group some of them in threes of the same colour.

The essential thing to remember is each tuber needs a stem.  I would separate in spring. Dry off tubers well.  If sound just keep frost free over winter.

Won't argue Dove.  Want to borrow convertible again soon 

Done correctly MrBB won't lose any flowers

bizarre situation- what would you do?

I would deliberate for a few days then ask to speak to the powers that be.  Say what you have said here, talk about your frustration and disappointment as well as the hard work you have out in.  Then ask how they can "compensate" you in some way.

However, to get your allotment neighbour back seems attractive to you.  Diplomatic controlled expression I think.
