 Last years brugmansia cuttings.

A hedychium originally grown from seed, about to flower. This is the only but that survived the heater breaking down in the greeenhouse in the middle of the really bad winter. minus 10 in the greenhouse is not good.

A late flowering canna. Two more dark leaved ones in the garden are in a race with the yucca. Will they flower before the frosts or not?

I'd start with clipping the lavender, and remove any weeds. It looks like there are a lot of low maintenance shrubs, that just need a bit of a tidy up and weed extraction.

pulled my first parsnip yesterday.
