I don't know the first thing about flowers, so if anyone wants to help point them out, that's certainly fine by me! All the flowers in the photos I'll attach below were flowers the previous owners of our home planted. I believe the lady worked in the flower & garden department at QVC.

Hi Andrew

Very! nice Thumbup

If you have bare spaces within your garden you wish to fill-in, you can (very easily) divide those Herbaceous Perennials in late summer, early autumn (fall) - doing so every 3 to 4 years generally helps keep the plants healthy, plus you get plants for nothing (side benefit, money saved can be spent on more wetshaving stuff Wink)

Take care, Mike

Hi Andrew

See here: Herbaceous plant

Here's a helpful podcast from University of Illinois Extension: Dividing Perennials and Bulbs

It really is very easy to divide perennials, here's a good example from University of Illinois Extension:

Some look like lilies? Whatever they are, I'm very jealous.

We are just being battered by 50-60 mph winds here, so all the plant & trees are having a hard time. We are hoping that we don't lose too much ...

Andrew, they are beautiful. Thanks for sharing and enjoy them. I live in an apartment so have nothing like that. In fact, I have no plants at all. Sad
