Don't think so as the Garden Centre is open to the public. The major perk is the gardens; they are wonderful. Allow a full day there and there are things of interest in every season. And you get a good magazine which deals with specific plants and vegetables in depth.

By all means split up the clumps. Water them well until they are established when you replant.

Do check out all the above plants before you let them loose in a lake. Several of them are thugs and will spread. Some of them are lovely, though.

Could it be a Stinkhorn fungus hidden under a bush. Often smelled on a country walk. Smells like a nasty case of drains.

Asparagus New Shoots

The asparagus grows from the crown. The crown expands over time. The asparagus don't always come up straight, that's why hand-weeding is recommended.
