1. Knautia macedonica

2. Hollyhock

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.

unusual garden, unusual problem to make safe - any ideas?

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.

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.
