Oh, Shelley, yes you can move this plant

These arum lilies are easy to grow......bit shade and moist soil is best.  I have even grown them in the pool.  They will grow in sun but then require more moisture

Here they are hardy so maybe you could throw a fleece over them in cold of winter.

They are easy to split.....I just dig them up and pull apart or chop/slice off and plant ASAP.

They might flower again this year...*its been such an odd season so who knows?  Cut off flowered stems and remove any yellowed or dead leaves.  Tidy it up.  Feed. Water. 

These plants are best in shade.....they light up dark corners.  Plant with lobelias like queen Victoria for wonderful foliage and flower contrast and they like exactly the same comditions

Good Evening FORKERS

Dove, just a reminder.  You're retiring soon, dont forget.

Swiss sue...some heavy rain and flood damage in some places but it's been lovely today

You deserve some rest gardening have been working hard

Been so busy at foodbank today but we have almost run out of food.  Mostly it's good but we were caught out today by couple of scammers.  They used vouchers in different foodbanks somehow amd each for families of 10 so they did well.  We know them now so they will get nothing more.  I even trollied their supplies to their car for them!!!   Doesn't put me off though cos most of the families need this help

Yippee......I'm first,.......fifth on tonight.

Hiya KEF, I was about to ask what plants you bought.  Red fortune is good one...not too much loving care mind.  Water well as its young plant but then dry and sunny and hard.  I got agastache summer sunset today in the post. Must have 8 or more varieties and love em all

Oh, yes keep in a pot....repot now you can easily over winter it.

As lomg as good drainage is given too.  Wet cold soil doesn't suit penstemons.

Could also be.....vine weevils.  Check soil. Usually this is autumn and spring but worth a look.  Try tugging the plant lightly.  If it,comes,away without roots you have vine weevils

At this time of year some Heucheras do get crisp, brown and die.   I cut whole plant back and water well.   New growth is rapid and holds until summer's end.  

This forum is a bit of a joke!

Seems to be working at mo.  I think it was Tina threatening to sing one of her songs that forced the fix.  

Any newbies to the forum, Tina is none other than the famous Tina turner, as in Ike and Tina turner.

This forum is a bit of a joke!

I have just pm Daniel asking that he inform us what is going on with the forum.  I for one am finding it difficult to post on now and to read the latest comments.

Agree with you Tina, not sure if anything I write is posted or seen by anyone.

Daniel must be aware .....hiya Daniel, let us know what's going on
