In my flower beds. We live close to a woodland and gricultural area. Would be surprised though. Didn't think you got them in the north west!

On reflection - they are very large!

Oh my goodness! It certainly looks exactly like the picture. Is it possible for me to have stag Beatle larvae. I live way up in the north west of England!

Hi. We have a clematis Montana growing over a shed. It has been neglected for the last couple of years and is now just a tangled mass of woody stems. It is covered in buds though and so I am wondering when I can safely cut it right back and thin it out? Thank you so much for your help again.

My garden is riddled with some creatures very similar to this in appearance, but they definitely have legs. Any idea what they are and are they going to damage my plants?

Red hot pokers

They did seem to have lots of new growth but I just chopped most of that off (oh dear I can feel the panic rising again!!!). I am not usually brave enough to be so brutal with plants! These red hot pokers were flowering beautifully last season and I am hoping they still will this summer. I think in my inexperience two years ago I put too many of these plants, too close together. In year two they are huge and realistically there is probably only enough room for one there. Maybe I could transplant the ones I dig up and put them elsewhere? I think it is the right time to do that?

Hi everyone. I put this thread on the wrong section earlier! I had left my very successful red hot poker plants over the winter with the leaves on. It looked a terrible mess but at least the crown were protected in this terrible north western weather. This afternoon I bit the bullet and cut all the foliage back to about a foot above the ground, It was my intention to split and move some of the plants as there are four of them with a 1.5 meter radius. I discarded two huge sack full of foliage (It was massively overgrown!) but now I am having a panic attack that I have done the wrong thing! I am quite inexperienced. Can anyone reassure me? Thank you. Ziminuk.
