now, what plants are you tiring of?  What plants have simply overstayed their welcome? 

salvia Hotlips is sold and planted everywhere but why?  It can have red and white flowers at times when it looks ok but usually it is not attractive. Penstemons too ....some are good but some are not but they are now overplanted. Day Lilies?  Flowers for a day but retains the old ugly flowerheads that spoil foliage and embryo flowers all summer 

and chrysanthemums?  Over rated autumn performers with ungainly stems and short lasting flowers

don't be timid.....what are not so great in the garden?

I think it is a salvia too though which one I don't know.  There are so many.  Thought Black and Blue was darker Lyn..?  

Growing a couple more salvias this year...or rather for next year.  Have about a dozen or so different varieties, used to grow a lot more but gave away some like the ubiquitous and over rated Hotlips.  (Sorry couldnt resist the temptation to stir

A sharp kitchen knife would be gentler janebal as it is in a pot. (I would use a  spade if it was in the ground) Tip it out and cut a quarter from top to bottom. return to pots of john innes water and keep in gh for the winter.

Must be the only one on the planet not wanting bluebells in the garden.. Lovely to see in the great outdoors or in semi wild areas of the garden.....I don't have those.....but they are invasive things along with blue muscari
