Hosta, drive you mad don't they?  I've sung  silly songs that go on and on and on, acted dumb, repeated their questions, been angry,.pretended to be interested and then suddenly say no, etc.

Well, they wont last outside over winter gsdfandf

yes, you can move geraniums.....your pelargoniums....easily.  the roots wont be too big and a trowel will do the job.  Lift and replant.  Water in. Job done.  You can move pelargoniums several times without issues

Liri pinched my words....... exactly that Runny.  A watering with vine weevil killer is sensible but leaves do generally look tatty right now esp if growing in sun.  my regime now is to remove faded flower stems and clear away all dead,,dying and crispy tatty leaves.  I loosen soil and water well....prob a day or so after vine weevil application....and then mulch with a little dried manure.  Come end of August heucheras are looking good again.

just come really is hot out there.  A bottle of Crabbies ginger beer going down a treat whilst I nosey into the goings on here.   Oh I say! you can't do that 

Got a over past few weeks after lifting an old hellebore......of kniphofias  echinaceas, etc., that I will post on the forum in a day or so.  In this heat I have transplanted a couple of things, in flower too.  Newbies, don't copy's not best practise.



Yellow leafs

Are they the bottom leaves Paul?   If so, just cut them off ....lower leaves narurally get tattier. A picture will clarify. 

Doomed I tell you.......
