Can't resist a bargain!

for sure roots coming through the bottom....sounds painful .....mean you need to pot on Lena.

I would jump up to 1 litre now, tease roots out a little and soak before potting 

why did we worry?

Bit of heat and Sun making plants wilt!

Pity we couldnt put our own faces on the smilies Tetley.  That would really be fun.  They would be gurning faces of course

Excited Lena?   Know what you mean.  The warmth makes a heck of a difference plus the ever longer days 

you can pot up your Rubens...more buds will come anyway.  Water well 

bargains???  Always hunting, haggling and having the nerve to ask for a much lower price.

nice to be excited

all the despondency a few weeks back that spring would be drab has come to nothing

flowers everywhere including white osteospermums clump must be 2 metres across with huge white flowers on a hardy specimen.  white cascading  Anthemis too. Yellow osteos, azaleas, wallflowers, abutilons, tulips, lithodoras, geums, scabious, delphiniums, tulips, euphorbias, pieris, dicentras, heucheras,,tiarellas and heucherellas, ribes, .......etc. etc...and the real summer stuff still to come 

blossom on apples, pears, blueberries too......drab??

will this weird unseasonal weather herald more early summer flowering?  

an exciting spring I think filling me with optimsim that summer too will be offering us a bounty .  Of course the long heatwave will be appreciated too 

Guess what this is.....

Chicky I have a few of each that have survived and making good growth......over 30 cm tall.....but the cuttings have produced nice size plants too.  Agree, lovely plants 

Relocating plants

Cut back or not those pieris will struggle to survive.  Leave them as a lovely part of your old garden 

they will simply look awful anyway and I guess moving these plants as well as everything else when moving house is something you could do without Dean
