Boosting daffodil flowering
If some of your daffodil clumps haven't flowered as well this year, chances are they're getting a little overcrowded. Carefully dig up the whole clump and split it into smaller groups of three or four bulbs each, then replant in new spots in the garden, enriching the soil first with plenty of well-rotted farmyard manure to get them off to a good start: you should have them flowering again from next year onwards.

Plant of the Week: Bleeding Heart
The romantic common name of this early summer beauty hasn’t changed, although its Latin name has: now called Lamprocapnos spectabilis, you may be more familiar with its previous name, Dicentra spectabilis.
The plant is just as lovely by any name, though, its delicate, arching stems appearing as if from nowhere in late May, dripping with exquisite pink (sometimes white) heart-shaped flowers, each dangling from gossamer-thin stalks. The dainty, ferny foliage is just as delightful, and dies down naturally after flowering: plant other pretty woodlanders like hostas or ferns alongside to fill the space. Dicentra is easy to grow in sun or part shade, and prefers well-drained but moist soil.
