I would move it now. ( if ground is not waterlogged)

Perhaps obvious, but prepare the recipient site before digging up your tree.

Now is a food time but, as Dove says, size and age need to be considered.

Hiya Stacey.  Never used eBay.  Lots do.  Just a bit suspicious of it.

What a beautiful day,it's been here today. Sunny, warm, sea glistening, blue sky, people walking on the beach....lovely 

Nice to see ??ou back Hollie.   To see you back nice .......just made that up.  

Had a good day haggling a discount on a laptop for someone today. Always a game.  Salesman can't drop their prices because their "margins are so tight". And that they are virtually giving their products away!  Anyway got £50 off but will go back mid week to finish the job ....I.e. a bigger discount 

Will be a cold night.....clear skies, no wind etc

Soft Caress has been on my radar for some time.  However, it seems vulnerable to pest amd disease whenever I have checked it out. Anyone successfully growing this variety?

I would pot up those little tubers ASAP and I do this initially in dry compost.  If tubers have badly shrivelled I moisten them a little overnight indoors before potting   up.  They are then ready for take off in early spring

It's got to be glyphosate for me too. Only when the snowdrops have completed disappeared.

I had a scree once with lots of little gems. Loved it but it was early days and I hadn't appreciated the need for dryness over the winter.

I will again put in a scree and again with cushion, small even tiny plants and covered in winter.   Visited a guy few years back who had 3 greenhouses ESP for alpines.  Will see him again when I decide to do,this.  Very inspirational. Will get it right this time
