pot it up.

it needs dividing too so won't flower as well as if could do.  You could have at least a couple of plants there but keep plants of decent size.

use a basket too.  And aquatic compost.  Gravel on top.  And not to plant too deeply to start with.

Pronounciation

Latin names are so important.  I tend to forget I'm using Latin names when talking about plants when it may sound pompous sometimes.  However, talking to nurserymen, etc., it's the most  natural amd easy way.

Latin describes any plant accurately to help us choose exactly what we want

Dicentra spectabilis - is yours up yet?

Posted: 24/03/2015 at 07:07

Yes my dicentras are showing plenty of foliiage as are most perennials now.  It all depends on temperature, situation, location and light.  But don't worry Gillian I'm sure yours will be showing soon but don't investigate ....those shoots are brittle.
