Make lots of plants from one!

 
 
So have you got any large clumps of plants in the garden that arn't really performing like they used to? Well then its time to start dividing them up to give them a new sprig of life.
 
We've been dividing Sedum's in the garden this week and my goodness they are tough.
 
It's very simple to do, you just need two forks to tear them apart and your away, just don't be too precious about the plants, you will hear some crunchy noises.
 
 


Bit of a struggle this one...

 




Look how many we've got now...
 


 
 
 
Alex being as helpful as ever potting up the new Sedum plants...
 
 
 
 
 
Ta dah!

Spring is springing and hopping and popping



 
 
Spring is springing out everywhere. Along the River Wandle there is some beautiful white blossom out.
 
 
 
 
Can you spot what we have in our pond?
 
 
 
 
 Crocus, with their beautiful purple veins of colour.


 



 
 
Mr Fritillaria persica popping up.
 
 
 
 
Tete a tete's smiling outside the greenhouse.
 
 


Basil babys.


 
 
Our crocus have popped out and the first chicks have hatched. This finishes off our spring medley.....for now.
