Hard to photograph in full sun, so took advantage of a dull day...Didn't spot the fly.

excellent shop pims, love saxafrages, took me ages to spot that fly..... near the middle Dwyllis on the pink petal :-))

I saw the fly right away as I had tons of them here yesterday for some reason:(((

Such a beautiful plant this! You mentioning the fly, I don't know if you had the same thing your way, there were loads of them all over the place yesterday, I have never seen so many. I was wondering whether the sun brought them out yesterday.

Lovely P - do you know do they split well? My neighbour has lots and she is looking for some oriental poppies - I may offer a trade :)

My own view here Scottish..But I think they are better as young plants before three years are up they need splitting as they tend to die off in the middle..Don't know what the others think??? Worth asking as a Q.

I will do P....I did have these years ago at my old house and I seem to remember they looked yukky after a few years - I ended up binning them. That was before I had 'any' confidence in gardening. Cheers

I think a lot of plants are likes that pimms, it frustrates me when they die off in the middle.

if you put soil in the middle it re-grows quite quickly, found that out last year i think it was Terra who suggested it, they do split reasonable easy just the roots can be a bit fiddly...

Really? That is a great tip, and it makes sense, even to me.

1 May, 2012

 

yep really, it does work :-))

1 May, 2012

 

I tried it but it didn't work?

1 May, 2012

 

Thanks SL....I'll give it a go on one of her shabby looking ones :)

that's odd Sticki, how much soil did you put in the gap?

1 May, 2012

 

cant remember now, i thought it looked deep enough and spread wide enough to give good growth conditions??

1 May, 2012

 

i can't explain that then, i must admit i didn't know until i was told last year so maybe it doesn't always work it did on my little one...

1 May, 2012

 

glad it worked for you

1 May, 2012

 

sorry your's didn't work, my ones big enough to split if you want a piece...

1 May, 2012

 

oh, you are so kind Surreylad, thank you but i still have some, maybe thats the answer, when they go brown in the middle ~ split them up [no more brown middle!!] ??

2 May, 2012

Very pretty! I think Surreylad must be pulling our legs - can't see the fly at all, but apparently I have to look "on the pink petal"!!

2 May, 2012
