Wonderful Victoria.  Love the colour of the cosmos in the first picture - does it have a name?

Remember as a child when my Dad's crab apple wine all shot its corks the same night - we thought someone was downstairs with a shotgun

Love Hardy - dripping beeches and drops on gatebars - genius

But i am still picking sweetpeas, so refuse to contemplate A'*%#^m yet.

New Rudbeckia and Echinacea plants query

I would pot up and leave in a cold frame or cold GH once the weather gets a bit colder - both can be a bit borderline hardy, so i would want them a bit older and tougher before they face their first winter.  Then plant out next spring.
