Bargain time of year!

Welll whatever you do Daisy doo, don't plant your astrantia (whatever colour it is) in a dry spot.  So many astrantias  are lost because are allowed to dry out

Love astrantias too Beaus Mum.  Check out Superstar ....lovely vigorus white...and it will go well with your hydrangea.  But my own favourite is Jumble Hole...unlike any other I think.  It's one I will be dividing in a month or so.  It's been flowering non stop since June

Clematis Montana

Posted: 14/08/2015 at 23:30

I have moved montana successfully...quite large in fact...but I think it better not to. I would not advise it but I do do it.  if you are sure you want to try it go for it but wait until the autumn, mid September.  The soil will still be warm.  

Just for info though....often when I have moved clematis I have found they have grown again from pieces still left in the ground.  A sharp saw or serrated knife straight through the root system can produce a couple of large plants.

Excellent but dont overlook the local nurseries.  ,you can get some real bargains from September onwards.

the very best bargains of course are your own plants....divide in autumn for plants for free.  Most everything can be divided.  Swap divisions with neighbours and friends too.  

O Verdun, Oracle of All the Grasses, hear me!
