Separate the stems and pot them up with their linked tubers. keep compost dry for a few more weeks until shoots are seen then lightly start watering.  The bigger the tuber the bigger and better the flowers will be in summer

In Or Out Of The EU Garden?

For me it is the chance of a lifetime.  If we don't get out now we never will. We will thrive outside...we will not be on our own, whatever that means.  Europe wants our many know an increase in our payment has already been agreed but kept quiet until after the referendum?

Plants for heavy clay soil

In response to a query from Spud, try astilbes on your heavy clay soil.  Astrantias too. Japanese painted ferns. Acteas/cimicifugas too.  Grasses like hackonechloa and various sedges would enjoy it there

Trailing plants

Ideally a permanent planting cos azaleas will not like repeated digging around their roots.

my lithodoras are in both very free draining sites and in good moisture retentive soil so pretty adaptable.

sometimes a strong combination can be a real eyecatcher Marinelilium .  I would go for this and then a strong summer theme in another pot

A word about David Cameron....does ANYBODY ACTUALLY BELIEVE him?  I rarely have known a politician lie as much.

Lithodora, yes, is a trailing plant Margaret. 

gentian blue flowers for at least 2 months...mine are already in flower.

lithodora heavenly blue is the one to google . Whatever colour your azalea is lithodora will look good with it.
