Re: checking in / happy fall!


Still, quite a job. I just now dug up a big clump of Phlox pan Franz Schubert. I've potted nearly 30 gallons to 2 gallon size pots from it, each with good sized rootballs, plus I replanted a nice sized clump. They came apart very easily.

In this case, the asters were "daughters" of the mother clump. Alma
has decided that she wants to take over the bed! I dug up the entire
root ball of each of them, so the operation was not really a division.

Really?  I always wait until spring to divide her.  Right now, a
2yr old Alma is absolutely mammoth; I've trussed her up with
fencing to help keep her upright even after having pinched 3 times
during the season.  I can't imagine moving her while she is in full
bloom.  I always divide her no later than the 3rd season, because
otherwise she's so thick, it becomes daunting.
Speaking of daunting...I divided a Hydrangea mac 'Lilacina'
yesterday.  What a job.

I spent today cleaning the crabgrass and other grassy weeds out of
one of two perennial beds. Resigned myself to almost completely
redoing it  because of the amount of digging necessary to remove the
undesirables. Saved seeds from my Silene regiae because I am also
spreading Preen. Transplanted two clumps of Alma Potschke aster.
Hauled three wheelbarrows full to the burn pile. Planted 3 Kniphofia
'Red Flamingo', 5 Echinacea 'Rubinstern', and one Louisiana iris
'Joie de Vivre'. Now off to downtown Chicago to attend a non plant
related :>( meeting. The fare on Amtrak will be the least expensive
part of the three days.
