Wonderful stars all

Love that buddleia against the lime green Fairy, and Artjaks border really made me smile.

lovely when a new garden gives you surprises like that too!

Love echinaceas - only have pink ones - prima donna and pink parasol (grew the latter from seed).  Luckily they got going before the slugs started marauding this year

OL - dividing plants is normally done in autumn or early spring - wouldn't do it now as the heat will stress them as they try to get re-estabilshed.  Loved your before and after pics, but couldn't see enough of the borders to be able to give divding advice - maybe some close ups of potential candidates might help?  You can normally tell if they need dividing because they get a dead area in the centre.  However if you want to  divide them to make more plants then go ahead as long as they have formed a big enough clump to have a few growing points.  Hope that helps

HELLO FORKERS!

Don't change plans for me, but if it was later in August, and at a weekend, i would love to come - just checked google and it is only a 2 hour drive for me.

Can you identify this?
