Just ordered agastache blue boa.  Coming on Tuesday.  It's a plant I wanted for past 12 months so well pleased.

It is available as small plugs but I'm impatient for show this year.  Anyone else hankering after a special plant?

Size of roots removed

I would clear all roots.  It's what I do.  I dig and dig again to ensure no future root problems. Best done when ground is clear.

Berghill, that's right.  Fried with vine weevil grubs.  Now others may realise I was not joking.  But fried in Cornish butter
