I planted My Monet Weigela, Bagatelle Barberry in the One Of Everything garden. I dug up the sedum that was going crazy around a Viburnum and replanted some in the Big Trees and Birds garden along with Sedum linear Sea Urchin. I took two Caryopteris Longwood Blue cuttings and potted them up. I potted up what was left of Gold Flame Spiraea after being overtaken by the sedum.
