Digging up large roots systems

Posted: 12/04/2014 at 22:17

Hiya Foodie

I think you will be ok.  Deep loose roots will likely die on hemerocallis.  I've never found a problem with moving and digging them up and roots left behind growing.

Morning Hester

I don't grow many annuals.....just odd few for containers.

However, I have seen so many gardens given over entirely to annuals and they look fantastic.  There is no denying the pleasure during the summer of a garden in full glorious colour because of annuals

For me though, annuals lack structure and form....it's just colour and often all at the same height.  Perennials add so much more to a garden and actually are a more economical option to annuals

Chicky, I too received a clematis from Taylors.  Agree excellent value.  Should add Taylor's to the "good guys" thread 

Oh!  Whoever lay on that "cushion" last night should know it was a bag of dried manure I forgot to clear out.

Right.....I am determined to get veg sown today and not get side tracked.

Cloudy but warm and no wind....perfect for seed sowing methinks

Your not overwatering are you Mark?   Sounds like it to me.  They wont want too much water now ...nights are still pretty cold.  

When warmer and plants actively growing then you can water well

Charlie dimmock was a big reason for me tuning in to ground force....

Plant addiction?  Me too.  For hellebores, salvias, heleniums, agastaches, astrantias, etc etc.

Many new plants this year too.  Developing a taste for dahlias esp foliage colour and single flowers.
