Morning Dove

pretty much what I would do with Daniel too 

I would take cuttings of salvia now and move it and clematis in late Sep/October.  

I find most salvias move surprisingly successfully whatever their size

physical and continuous cutting for a year or three I think should be your main focus.   replanting ideas should be put on the back burner until clear

Red hot today.    

Cut lawns, picked more blueberries, beans, toms, carrots and some apples.  The blueberry crop has been huge this year.
