The essential thing to remember is each tuber needs a stem.  I would separate in spring. Dry off tubers well.  If sound just keep frost free over winter.

Won't argue Dove.  Want to borrow convertible again soon 

Done correctly MrBB won't lose any flowers

bizarre situation- what would you do?

I would deliberate for a few days then ask to speak to the powers that be.  Say what you have said here, talk about your frustration and disappointment as well as the hard work you have out in.  Then ask how they can "compensate" you in some way.

However, to get your allotment neighbour back seems attractive to you.  Diplomatic controlled expression I think.

Do you still look like that Lily?

Cheekily, my niece has pinched a baby pic of me to add to a calendar she makes for me every year.  To think, I have to see that for a whole month next year!  Mind you I was sooooooooooo beautiful just like you Lily   I haven't changed at all and still wear that nappy

Philadelphus Advice

Philadelphus is easy to prune.  But not now.

I would wait until it flowers in June then cut out flowered stems back to new shoots

You can then cut to,the base one or two old woody stems

Don't like the clocks changing in autumn.  It simply reinforces the onset of winter.

Don't forget folks.....hour FORWARD tomorrow night 

It's my birthday

Picked up a wonderful pre ordered birthday cake for my niece ...21 next week.  Cost an arm and a leg.  I am her nearest relative and we are like father and daughter since her mum died when she was just 15 months old.  

Funny, it was her mum's 52nd birthday couple of days ago .....always strange to see happy birthday flowers from her for her mum

Beautiful sunny afternoon and evening here.  Perfect blue sky, no wind and dry 

Salvia Amistad is becoming richer by the day......deep  purple now.  The autumn suits it brilliantly.  Have a yellow leaved dogwood behind one and combo is striking.  

Went to see my mum earlier in the care home.  She was tired and just wanted to sleep.  A visitor .....known for her ability to talk and talk and  talk and ltalk and talk.....had seen her just before I arrived so my visit was wasted.  Ah well!  See her tomorrow
