Moving shrubs and perennials

Posted: 21/09/2015 at 18:51

Hello James.

do you know what plants we are talking about? 

I moved things today but best to wait until next month.  Perennials though, if they have stopped flowering, can be moved now but shrubs are better later

Hello Sally

I remember your post about this earlier

small claims court?  Trading Standards?  

Take photos. Keep evidence of your emails, etc

no turf should have been supplied like that.  

Inform the suppliers you are consulting with the above and will proceed with court action if they do not respond to you in 7 days.  Keep this letter or email too 

good luck

At times what a nasty world we live in.

friend of my niece was brutally attacked over the weekend and died this morning.  He was football team mate of her boyfriend.  they had all gone out as a group earlier.  Just 19 years old.  His family will be devastated.  What can anyone say?


This winter

Nobody has a clue.  Not the slightest idea.  Nature doesnt know ...flora or fauna.  It depends on where you live.........

the only thing for sure is that the climate change brigade will claim, whatever happens, that it is indeed further evidence of climate change...........and people will believe it

Because berberis leaf colour on pruned bushes is better my experience. Apart from Helmond Pillar, berberis atropurpurea varieties look so much better and denser when pruned.  Also as foliage comtrast in limited spaces they need to be pruned.  An unpruned berberis is a pain in the a.. to control after a few years of no pruning

Perhaps or just early leaf fall

hibiscus moving

They do spread their roots a bit though fred.  

Determine where to plant it and get a decent hole prepared. then dig up your hibiscus sometime over the autumn/ winter
