Hi Steve - I used to grow Rodgersia in a previous garden - this one's too free-draining.

I remember new plants taking a little while to get going - they also really like their roots in damp to boggy conditions - although yours are by a stream is the bank dry?  We've had a very dry spring. 

The new leaves are the ones that  are lovely copper colour then they turn greener as the season develops.

Grass has black after using evergreen extreme green

Hi Craig

Afraid I can't see the pics - to upload photos on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your posts and follow the instructions - don't think it works for all phones tho'.

If it doesn't work let us know ...

Boundary marker

I think I'd go for low posts with rope between - it will mark the boundary but not obscure the feeling of having an open space

Good morning all

Well it got up to 29.7C in the shade here yesterday and it's already 19.5C this morning ... wonder what's in store for us today ... the front lawn is looking very dry and parched but I'll just leave it alone - unlike Wonky I'm not being judged this weekend! 

OH hears our hedgehogs more than I do 'cos he's such a light sleeper - he says they're very noisy - don't know about coughing, but maybe a slug went down the wrong way ...
