Hi KEF and Chicky 

No need to water here - still damp underfoot from the downpours two days ago - pots all a bit soggy too.   Did some hard cutting back yesterday - took the big blue aquilegias down to ground level - now G. Rozanne and the roses have a bit more space.  Also pulled most of the Forget me Nots out of the undergrowth and got covered with the seeds.  

Sowed more Red Mustard and Swiss Chard seeds and planted some more parsley seedlings out - hey're a bit behind - the first lot just didn't germinate at all.  I've had to buy parsley!!!  Need lots for supper today as I'm planning on making Falafel,Tabbouleh and Baba Ghanoush  for supper.

Geranium ID and sunflower woe

My slugs have only allowed one of my sunflowers to survive, despite my having spoken to them severely.  However this on remaining sunflower seems to know that the reputation of all sunflowers is on its shoulders - it's turning into the sturdiest looking sunflower I've ever grown 

what to plant atop a north faceing hill

And when you say 'hill' how high are we talking about and when you say 'cover from trees' what sort, how big and how close?  

Also is this a rural spot, coastal  or near a city?
