I am also in Scotland. Try to get to the garden centre behind Dobbies Edinburgh as they are much cheaper. Or Morrisons or B & Q.
I would get a Camellia, and grow a group 3 clematis through it for flowers in August - September. Each year you just cut back the clematis to around 6-12 inches. It then regrows flowering on this seasons growth - £1.87 in Morrisons. Get a honeysuckle for the wall - £1.87 in Morrisons.
Maybe an Acer or Amelanchier - currently both £2 in Morrisons. They could be at the back for height. Penstemons, Lavender, Phlox Paniculata - 3 feet high, flowers from July - October and scented. Currently 2 for £1 in Aldi and Lidyl. Echinacea for autumn flowers also 3 for £1 in same shops. Rudbeckia is also hardy and no trouble.
Several Erisemum Bowles mauve - flowers almost all year and scented - £1.87 each in Morrisons.
If you were near Edinburgh I would come help.

Thankyou Buttercupdays. I do remember Brookside being quite floppy and around 2 feet tall. I think I will definitely buy Rozanne .

I bought 1 geranium Brookside 3 years ago. I have split it several times and the plants always bounce straight back and flower until late August. I have read all of the many posts about Rozanne, and wonder if anyone has both Brookside and Rozanne, and what they think the main differences are?
