KEF, Guanajuato needs very warm...hot .....dry  spot.  You can discreetly stake stems (they can be little brittle) with short canes.  Not for very windy spot.  Different completely to Caradonna which is hardy, tough and tolerant of wind etc.  the former is demanding;  the latter is forgiving

Yes, definitely.  It's what I do.  Sturdier plants and only slightly later flowering.

I would wait Just a little while longer.  Conditions will be improving week by week now...soil warming....so better chances of rooting thyme.

Not convinced by dividing lavendars.  They do far better from new shoots taken in mid to late spring.  Growing from old wood is not what lavendars do.  Better more vigorous plants by summer's end from cuttings.

MrsGarden,  agree with Bilje but don't leave them in those poly bags. They will get leggy, drawn and exhausted...prob rot too.  Even if you can get them on windowsill in 9cm pots in good light they will be fine.  

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?

Re Amistad.  I was lucky to get a couple of cuttings 2 years ago in the post from someone who had the plant.  I exchanged for cuttings of cacalifolia, a little gem of a salvia.  I think that's what this forum could do more of!

For those of you disliking blue you may think again when you see some of these.

Waiting for the plumber to make pipe connections.  He just turns up so have to hang around.  Luckily I can tune into the forum between various chores this morning.  Sun still shining, just
