1. Knautia macedonica
3. Rudbeckia ? laciniata
Cut them all back when they've finished flowering. If you cut the knautia to half it's height it may grow back and make some more flowers.
I read your post and was going to answer, but Bob has said exactly what I was going to say. When I harvest them they are beige.
I would do as Dove says. The children are far too important to take risks with.
If you want it totally wild then just leave it, if you want it like a wild flower meadow or a bit tamed then cut it once or twice in summer, leaving it on the long side.
There are plants that like damp shady places like Astilbe, Rodgersia, Candelabra Primulas and Hostas.
I never even noticed that you can log out!
My violas have seeded themselves so I've been potting them up for this winter's pots on the terrace. I hope they work. I often get plug plants, but have sown wallflowers, daisies and pansies this year.
Mine too. I think it's more likely when they get a bit too dry.
Wow, what a lily! Worth waiting for.
Great sparrow pics.
Bev, how did you remember that lot? Oh, silly me, you must have written it down!
