It's just an annual cornflower Matt - 'Black Ball'. First time I've grown it and grew it for exactly that reason. Very easy and flowers constantly - I just keep deadheading it. Nice fine grey foliage. I can highly recommend it 

Is that a comma in your last pic? We don't get those here but loads of Torties, Peacocks and Red Admirals.

Night OL. 

I'm off too - got a school skirt to re hem

Some bricks or timber and a double layer of plastic sheeting for the top will suffice as a basic cold frame OL. When a friend was getting new windows I took a couple of her old ones to make a cold frame. Should have taken a few more and made a proper tomato growhouse

I'd think just somewhere sheltered and not too hot for now OL....oh no sorry - they'll definitely need the protection of a cold frame 

These GCs will sell any old tat won't they?

Matt - those are seriously beautiful cyclamen 

Daughter took these today,  in between helping me with the fence and cooking dinner!

Blimey - when I think of how much I had to hack off the one I moved last summer - must have been several thousand quid's worth!  

You 'was robbed' Charley - and unfortunately smaller plants establish quicker....

The yellow phormium will be lovely Dove. That one I have has nice red veining  so works well with other foliage which has red tints.

Hope son enjoys his garden.
