Mrs G - RHS says your salvia is hardy in most of the UK
It warmed up here eventually and I've been busy working on the new front border - first hoeing out the little weedlings that popped up after the last rain. Then I planted a baby Rosa glauca , Sedum spectabile 'Abbey Dore', Hemerocallis 'Summer Wine'
Helleborus orientalis 'Tutu' and Helleborus Niger 'Christmas Carol' Then I manoeuvred the hose pipe along the terrace, down the garden path and around to the front of the house and gave the border a thorough soaking.
I've also been scrambling along the back of the Shady Bank, grabbing hold of wayward honeysuckle tendrils and encouraging them to stay on our side of the fence rather than head off next door and towards the marshes.
I've also discovered lots of little self-seeded Geranium phaeums - I shall pot some up, so if anyone wants one let me know.
