Much needed help.

Still feeling like a bit of a newbie to this gardening business I was quite relieved to see that on the homepage of the Gardening Direct website is a ‘what to do now’ section which is giving me some much needed guidance.

With it being school half term I should be able to steal a couple of hours in the garden with the kids. I need to divide up a perennial plant, which since its arrival in my garden about 3 years ago has gone great guns. I have no idea of what it is, as it originally came from my parents garden but it is a lovely tall plant with lots of tiny yellow flowers.

I have never divided up a plant before, but there is a first time for everything. I am hoping to get about 3 or 4 clumps from it which I will probably put at the back of the garden by the compost bin where there is more space for it to stretch its legs.

I think the beds also need to be tidied up and forked over ready for the Spring planting. I am busy making lots of newspaper pots at the moment for my plug plants. This is as an alternative to using the plastic pots as I find these a real eyesore at the bottom of the garden and they take up some much space in the grow house that I would rather recycle them at my local garden centre.
