Impressive David .  I do use mower at a friend's place to shred her stuff.  Should do it on mine too.

Just in after a good walk down to the beach.  Lovely here. Warm, dry and light winds.  We all keep saying "what storm"?  

took the opportunity too to move some plants.....ground surprisingly in good heart.

Talkback: How to lift and divide day lilies

Jack, as long as the day lilies pieces are of reasonable size they should flower well next year.  

i would delay on the water lilies though.   Split these in spring

Autumn Lawn Feed

It simply adjusts the balance of nutrients ...basically less nitrogen.  What other plant is specially fed during the winter ?  A waste of money best spent on some extra plants?

I would be cautious.  How solid are these purpose built flats Nursie?  Figs are vigorous and can get pretty big

Autumn feed is a different sort of lawn feed though MrsG.....it can't replace a spring or summer feed.

To late to plant foxgloves?

They are vigorous plants CharleyBot.  Pots are really to hold them over winter.  One of the few plants I would check roots at this time and if If really  vigorous I would pot on now.  I have a few white ones now that may need potting on as they are still making plenty of growth

So you got worms and a tablet for them Bitterknitter

remind me please

Shirley,,just let them tick over now.  I would remove flowers. Would water only sparingly.  The idea is not to encourage growth over the winter now.  Pot on in spring before planting out.
