can you did up an old plant and relocate? cleaning out a bed and just wondered.
1 acre of land where i am clearing trees and a swimming pool so we can make the land productive. MK3 hilux single cab pickup which has been completely rebuilt over the last 2 years matt black and cool as! no animals yet except a very furry black cat called Hansel (he is so hot right now)

does seem a little resentful!  :D

but seriously, they have self seeded and sit in a part of a bed that i have plans for. as for the leaves being bitter, never noticed that. do use alot of it though and in a Greek salad they are sensational! nice young leaves just seem to keep coming all summer. must like the ground round here!

well we had about 5 roots when they came up, all doing well and i have come to the conclusion that salad burnet is very hardy and will live through any kinda transplant!
