Mine did too Simbad, and its getting to be a nice big clump!

Yes mines done well too Tetrarch I split it in spring and have 4 clumps now :-)
Just bought a new daylily its just arrived, in need of a bit of a daylily fix :-) haven't bought one for a while, its a huge plant called 'Selma Longlegs'.

I wouldnt have the space for that then! Wondered when you were going to post your next fix lol! It seems ages since you posted a new one..cant be like it myself.
I will be posting a host of new bearded iris soon, I cant believe how many I have ordered! My next door neighbour has kindly agreed to let me plant them in his garden if Ken will dig it over for him. Until then they will all be in pots!

His front faces south and west. Perfect for them to overwinter and start increasing. He will have a good show in the spring and I will leave him the odd one or two spares as a thank you. At present he has a few fuchsias and a forsythia and an aruncus, but the rest is a mass of mares tails and other weeds, which keep seeding into our front garden, so we will be glad to see them gone.

Yes haven't bought one since spring Tetrarch,that reminds me don't think I added that to my plant list, getting a bit picky I think, there are such a lot that look similar so trying not to buy any that look like ones I already have, do have my eye on another one ebay at the moment though:-)
Lol you must have quite a collection of iris now, can see you'll have them planted along the whole street before long, be quite a sight if you could :-), I have a huge clump of 'Jane Philips'? think its called that I must divide this week or it'll be too late.

No, its not too late..tho the longer is has in the ground before real winter sets in, the more anchored it will be when it gets windy. Even with the leaves trimmed they can overbalance.
