My spurge has not flowered in the three years since I moved it to another part of the garden It is now at bottom of a sloped lawn Could it be that it's too damp for it though the area dosent appear damp ?

On plant Linum flavum



Welcome to GoY are you actually asking about spurge or linum Pauline?

Have found the correct name now and it is Euphorbia Characias Thankyou for your interest

Well like all the Euphorbias it likes a well drained soil and the bottom of a sloping lawn is unlikely to be well drained. Needs a sunny sheltered position too. If it likes you it can be a bit of a thug.

Appears I need to move it then ? Probably not now but in a dormant period ?

wait until autumn and then move.

Thankyou very much for your help and advice I will move it later in the year
