adding to the garden theme on this thread, I potted on, planted out, mulched and almost cut the grass.......will do that tomorrow. A delivery of young plants.....ordered for a friend.....arrived in pretty poor state.  Anyway,  being replaced and can keep what I have.  

Trip to local nursery tomorrow....not for me but no doubt something will tempt me

I have that variety too Obelixx.  Later than the others and very vigorous.  Dont ever remember buying it but I divide every year making new large flowering clumps

Photinias do not move well, in my experience. 

just about time to move it though.  All the sensible things like diggng as big a rootball as possible and watering it in well.  Better too to have the recipient hole prepared before digging up your plant.  Mix in compost and granular fertiliser too.  

Photinias are not really good pot plants....in the ground for sure Charlotte m 

Spirea Help!!

Jason, always a shock to the system when any plant is pruned however your pink spirea should recover.  I prune mine annually...havent checked yet but I would expect to see the new shoots just emerging.  Early here though.

i really dont think you have killed your plant...I have cut them quite drastically and they recover.

still early .......wait awhile.  Let us know when you see it growing

What the hellebores is going on?

I feed and mulch well....mpc mixed with dried farm manure,,chicken pellets and blood, fish and bone fertiliser is my current choice.

ziggy, flowering this year has been variable ....an unusually mild and very wet winter......but a thick mulch will help for next year.  Probably you will have flowers this summer
