Had a giggle about you having to move it because it's in a dry spot...you must have the only dry garden in the uk!!! :-)

Ha ha we had a very dry September but my garden was under quite a lot of water yesterday after the torrential rain we had in the last 2 days as the pond has over flowed.
This plant was under trees and that keeps it very dry. I moved this last week and its now very wet!
