Cowslips

 
The Tidy Garden is simply oozing with 'good times' at the moment.

 
The Cowslips have done their bit for this Spring (I use the word 'Spring' loosely here in the UK) and it's time to shake those babies up & divide them.
A gentle tease of one plant...et voila...9 new ones.

 
The problem is the garden is bursting at the seams, so for now I've put some in pots and tucked them away for safe keeping...

...ready for next year.

I never seem to get round to dividing my primulas, probably because it's usually too warm and dry at this time of year. Might get round to doing it one day.

These are beautiful, Jane. They look like they should be in an enchanted forest. I've never heard of Cowslips. We must not have them over here, but I wish we did. Thanks for sharing. :-)

I go on vacation and come back to find your blog with a whole new look! Very nice!

I wish I had the problem you are - on the contrary, I am still trying my best to fill up my garden. If we lived closer, I would happily take those pretty cowslips off your hands!

I'm afraid there is so much else to do at the moment that the cowslips and primulas will just have to wait for the time being - they have been lovely this year.

One of my all time favourites. They flower on the drive and on one of the lawns; I have to mow around them. Who could mow a cowslip? D

I have nothing to say about cowslips because I can't grow them, but I wanted to mention that I think your new blog look is cool.

Hi Jane, I like your cowslip and its brilliant to divide and get so many. However I also like Mr Gs Tiarella, but which do I like best***where have I heard that before.

We have these in our garden and my Mum used to separate them and suddenly we would have a whole flowerbed filled with these, in different colours. They are great and jolly spring planties :)
