Always loved gardening but not always had the time. After over thirty years here I finally feel I am getting on top of things and it's looking ok

Thanks Rachel. A massive clump I dug up from my gravel and didn't know what to do with was left by my outside tap for several weeks. I was so busy I just kept wetting it with the tap and then finally dumped it into a large plastic pot. Even that is starting to shoot. Will leave it in there and see if it looks ok. The roots are just too big to bother putting it in the garden 😊 @rachelbrooks

πŸ˜‚ I think they were originally a 'wildflower' growing in hedgerows Sue (or...weed as Paul calls them! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜†) I don't care...I love them, weed or otherwise! πŸ‘πŸΌβ˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰

I had too much last year Jane. It came up everywhere so I dug some of the clumps up and split them. Was worried they weren't coming up so at least I know there's one alive now. This one is white and I bought a new one this year which is red or pink. Can't remember as usual πŸ™„

You should do Angie. I didn't ever plant mine they just appeared before I got back into gardening properly @angiecrazycatlady. There's still time Rachel @rachelbrooks. I have a clump in a pot as I didn't know where to put it and there's no sign there either. Thanks Jan @janric 😊
