Would it help you to look over  V e r d u n s     thread  "the star in your garden right now " you could use some  of these for ideas. Make a list for next year .( this is what I do )..........I am also in the cottage garden society which works well for me .......specially the seed exchange . It's  very interesting.

I can't add much more  as you have already been given some good advice. You have to be careful you don't over feed ,as this will make the plants soft and sappy   Your cottage garden path is beautiful and will set off  cottage spring everything 

My hardy geraniums had got leggy so I have cut them hard back .they should give another show  and should Bush up too. I do this with quite a few and continually dead head.

Right now you may be able to drop on plants in the sale corner to fill up the spaces.I usually go for the plants which will come back year after year.I also bung them in close together to cut down on weeds.
