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

I am working through my Beth pears now - definitely an Aug/sep crop this year.  Very small but delish

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
