    I planted 3 specimens of Nemesia denticulata 'Confetti' one year ago. They have grown enormously and flowered continuously since the month of May. I cut them back almost to ground level in the middle of July and they have grown and started to flower in the space of 3 weeks only. Incredible plant!

    If I had to move them I would do it at the end of winter or beginning of spring next year.

  • Thanks will follow your advice , may leave the rock rose in place as I am told they root deeply.

    which plant is rock rose here? 

    Cistus or helianthemum? I've heard both called rock rose

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • Hi it's cistus it's a fairly new one it's been in the ground for about 8 months .

    They're said not to like being moved but I would think after only 8 months you'd get away with it. Give the ground a thorough soaking round it so you can get it root intact and it will hardly know what happened. It will be settled before winter. It might be better to wait til spring but the root will be bigger by then

  • Thanks i have move it soon so I will do as you suggest this week .
