Mainly geraniums and smallis ones ... such as Sedum.

It always seems to me that I havent got enough supports.

The supports are all sorts ones you can buy from garden centres.

I don't want to buy any plant supports I already have some.

Can anybody give me any tips relating to the best way to support plants varying in height from 24 inches to 6 feet ?

Thanks

Thankyou all for your help.

I already have campanula which grow well and your suggestions will be a great help.  particularly the links to the RHS website.

I have a border which is in partial shade and has a few shrubs.  I have got some Michaelmas daisies and rudbekia Goldstrum planted at the moment.  I'm looking for ideas for annuals / perennials which I can plant fulfilling the following criteria :-

About 2 feet high,  summer flowering,  red, blue or white.

Would appreciate some help.

The Rhodo has leaves.

The Hebe flowers in the autumn and is lovely ... the problem is that it has always been susceptible to intense cold and leaves and branches die ... this is unsightly although it doesn't kill the Hebe as it comes back.

Plant Protection - Fleece 'Hats'

I have a couple of these fleece 'hats' to protect my more sensitive plants from frost.

Can I keep them on for the next few months without removing them from the plant of should they be removed periodically to give the plane a bit of sun / light ?

Thanks,

Chris
