    Iamweedy, very pretty, sadly I lost all mine when the garden where we used to live flooded. I'm of the the garden centres tomorrow (all three) so will keep an eye out for them.

    I had some in my old garden but haven't seen any to replace it.
    Are they more likely to be in the alpine section? I don't often look there.

    They grow almost anywhere Nick, and are pretty sturdy, so don't worry too  much about moving them.
    As already said - a clump with some root on it will grow away no bother. Keep it watered initially until it takes, but it will grow in sun, shade, damp or dry when established.  :)

    They might well be in an alpine area in GCs, B3. I've never bought any - it's always been in every garden I've had, and it's easy to shift about. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    I love London Pride.  It takes me back to my childhood:  mother had a wide border of it down one side of the garden.  My brother and I thought it would be lovely to give her a bouquet of flowers - and we picked every single stem!  She couldn't be angry - but taught us how to take selected stems here and there to preserve the overall planting, but to have some of the flowers (of all varieties) picked to take indoors.  (You will realise that, in our small London garden, we had no space for a "cutting garden".

    You can have some of mine, B3.

    All of you take care of your London pride, as GC are not keeping it anymore as its not a popular plant. 😯🥺
