Thanks very much Carolyn; I'll do that.

... trying to remove as much celandine from a large woodland bed - although I love them, sometimes things get a bit out of control and I decided that enough was enough. ...

Likewise but with Allium triquetrum which is a (beautiful) thug in these parts.

Another great log & beautiful trilliums Ian; thank you.

For me a benefit of this lockdown has been more garden time, and a chance to plant out batches of seedlings before the new roots develop. 
My only clump deserving of the name was a poor old T. grandiflorum too long in a pot, but it separated readily into quite a few nice divisions that are in the ground at last. 
However the variability of seedlings is more interesting and, as you show so clearly, allows adaptation to local conditions with successive generations & self-seeding.

Would you advise division of hacquetia now or later?

I would not move it just now unless you have no option with plants like that I would prefer to move or split them just as they are showing the very first signs of growth. However sometimes it is best to do things when it suits the gardener so if you can lift it and divide with minimal damage then it should be okay to do it now just be sure to give it after care in the form of watering for a few weeks even if it rains.

Bit late  to divide  Hacquetia now, Ashley  - better  in  late winter. (Even though it  has  turned  very  nippy  lately!)

We've  had  the  pale  Ficaria for  some  years  now  - it  is  very  well behaved, just  forming  a  nice  clump .

Ian,

Another most enjoyable bulblog, thank you.

I have spent much of the lockdown trying to remove as much celandine from a large woodland bed - although I love them, sometimes things get a bit out of control and I decided that enough was enough. Your ficaria verna pale form - how do you control it? Does it set seed with the more usual bright yellow flowers? I have found a couple of very pale ones in the garden and potted them up. I have not decided what to do with them yet - I don't want to unleash yet another invasive terror into the garden! How long have you been growing the pale form?

Thank you Carolyn, the pale Ficaria is much better behaved than the typical yellow form it stays in clumps and does not spread out very quickly. The area I showed is after around 15years.

Thanks Maggi and Ian.  It's fine where it is for now so I'll leave it alone until next winter.

Thanks, Ian, that is useful to know.

The picture titled "Corydalis ‘Craigton Purple’ and sister seedling" shows a closeup of the flowers - which all have laughing little elfin faces.
