At any time Redechan.  Easier if there's top growth though. However dig nice big clump with plenty of soil intact and replant without too much disturbance

Serious! Really

Ginagibbs well I remember the ying yang song by spike Milligan.  Thought it smart to record myself singing it for my mobile ringing tone until I was in Morrisons waiting to be served and my phone went off. It was horrible.  Changed if very quickly.

Was the goon show on the radio...vaguely remember it or was it something else like it? 

Rise and fall of Reggie Perrin was brilliant Sara.   

You had a crush on George Harrison busy?  I had a crush on old man steptoe.  

I guess all the womenfolk here are trying to work out ages now We men aren't bothered with such trivia

Ooooooooooo.  They look rather nice.    One spare....ooooooooo

Its been dry, sunny and warm....windy too.  Had a visitor from 15 miles away who said its been pouring down there. That's Cornwall.  Little mini micro climates.  Heavy shower mid morning and beautiful since.  Planted out a few more large wallflowers.

Punkdoc  my conditions are so different.....well drained here so a stream with its wildlife and bog plantIng makes me envious. Would love to grow Rodgersias but can't.  I guess you can there.   Everything has a plus and minus I guess. 

Agree Urban it feels more like september or late,August. Lovely...till it rains again

Mystery solved!  Heard this sucking noise last night.  Went outside and there he was.....Dove's hedgehog with his Little Henry vacuum "hoovering the small slugs up".

Hello fairy

I have grown Etoile Violette in a pot for past 4 years.  It's buried in the ground but unsure exactly where to plant it.  It's a lovely plant all the better in the ground.  It's one of those things I never get round to doing but may in a day or so.

dont kill it

Wet here.....again.  May be a respite this afternoon amd tomorrow.  

Be nice to get your car back dove.......celebrate it.  Even if it's pouring down get the roof down.  Silly me but I loved my sports cars once and often drove,around in the rain with hood down.  .  Left it out one day and got caught out with snow .....after that I was more sensible,

Hmmmmm!   Don't  like the end of summer time.  

Have nice day folks
