Evening soiled

If it's 2'6" high it should move quite easily.  I would do it now while the soil is warm amd the weather is still relatively mild.  Make sure you dig around the plant enough to,get a good rootball.  Dig the recipient hole first so the move is fairly quick.

You can add a mycorrhizal powder to the base of the hole amd rest the plant directly on it.  It's supposed to aid rapid root formation.  I would also add compost of some sort to the soil when you backfill plus an organic fertiliser 

Water it very well.  It should be fine

No flowers on Jasminium Officinale

I think the answer is because you are growing it on an east facing wall. How much sun does it get there?

Mine is growing.....and flowerimg still...on a south west facing well and another on a south facing wall.

Hello gardengirl, you make me feel lazy.   It's looking good weather for tomorrow so I might get some of my wallflowers out of the veg patch and into their final positions.

I used to take my young niece to get fresh cream...Cornish, of course.....buns.  She always had 2, hers and mine.  It was fair....she licked all the cream and jam and I had the "empty" carcasses.  Lovely times.

That's interesting nut.  Might try that with dianthus with gritty compost.

MsBeehaven.....what are your fav plants?

Emma....I think gardenIng is recognised as a sanity saver.  I know it's been my escape at times too so you are not alone.  And......when we eat our produce what a delight!  I think, like the great Monty himself, I get the SAD thing for few weeks but then get lifted by the promise of spring.  For me, down here, that can be as early as January 

Idea's please on my little plot

Coys, have you got your bulbs yet?  If not I would just get a few medium size daffs with great scent like cheerfulness and plant just alomgside your plants. Then  three  or four hyacinths....their scent is wonderful. A few crocus ....and, when you see little pots of them flowering in the early spring a couple of snowdrops. Leave a space for a couple of Regale lilies that flower in June...their scent too is wow!  None of these will take up too much room.  Since space is limited you could plant daffodils and pot them up after flowerimg and move them elsewhere for the summer...?  You can do this with lilies too.

Because your bed is by your door scent is a must.
