There really should be some kind of penalty system for solicitors- they make enough money for old rope without delaying the process. Our solicitor worked out the money owing to us after our sale at £15,000 short- good job we checked!

Lovely, and sad to leave it all behind but now you need to concentrate on sorting and packing and plans for the new garden.

Good luck with all that.  Hope it goes well for you.

Such beautiful photos as always, I will miss them but looking forward to seeing what you do in your new garden. How big will your new garden be?

Not actually measured the space, but certainly a lot smaller than here.

I'd really like to know which plants you have in pots, divided especially to take some of them with you?
You seem to have such a lovely selection to choose from :)

It would take a lot of work to list them all. Just to make it clear, all of them are divisions of plants in the garden, except for ones which are tender or, seedlings or things which we bought while we were still trying to sell. For example there are about 30 pots of named Snowdrops and over 400 Auricula seedlings.

I know you said they were divisions, I don't think I inferred otherwise tbh.
I just wondered which plants you felt you really couldn't be without in the new garden ;)
I for instance, have some hardy fuchsias that I have always taken cuttings from so I could take them with me, plus a lovely red Hellebore, which I don't know the name of :)

Trouble is that the new garden is almost certainly  shady, so most of my sun loving alpines would not grow. There were no visible signs of bulbs in the new place, so I have split up clumps of rarer Narcissus, Galanthus. Erythroniums etc. Also got a fair number of Wood anemone types as well. Hellebores, basically one of each sort (out of hundreds)

The removal man who came to survey us for a costing was a little bit astonished too! At least, once boxed they will move the plants for us.

Same here.  We ended up with a whole lorry trailer for my plants which included roses, clems, hydrangeas and hostas in pots plus other plants of particular personal significance lots of smaller pots of cuttings and divisions...
