Morning folks

hope those with health issues cope well 

Moving of Plants/Trees

Ritchie, pretty safe to move those after just one year right now.  

Too many moves will certainly damage any shrub or tree.  

Next move should be in autumn and prob in October 

i often move all sorts of plants....sometimes as a whim takes me; I guess we all do that occasionally..........but it is better to be sure in the first place where to plant something.

Mine is about to flower.  

I think pruning will be simply to remove the flowered stems to keep a compact shrub.  Not overly showy out of flower but quietly attractive foliage.  Have feeling a lot will be lost where winters are cold later.  We'll see 

Filling a Raised Bed

My view too Fairy.  

Come spring you can use plant out your bedding plants plantmark But don't add fertiliser at that time.  There will be more than plenty of nutrition for your plants all season. I expect you to have lush growth next year so pinching back your plants would help them to be sturdy.  

Reusing this year's soil

Stuoobs, yes add to your raised beds.  Roots and all because they will disappear to nothing by spring.  They wont really add anything to your compost heap at all.  Just spread it about
