I didn't think it was possible to kill salvia hotlips. I had one that grew HUGE and moved it and just like you're thinking of.... when it was in flower. Believe me I wasn't careful about digging it up either and indeed it was so huge I was intent on just putting it on the compost heap and getting rid. Indeed it sat there for about a week and then my gardener decided he'd dig a hole and plant it where I've a load of flowering shrubs.
It never skipped a heartbeat and is still there today.
thanks verdun,i will be carefull,doing it tonight,i couldent do it before,what with trowbridge in bloom,lol and thanks northernlass2,thats good to hear.x
