late summer plants

Buddleias and hebes do fine on my pure sandy soil.  They may look sad at times due to no water but they rally - good for butterflies too.  I'm an advocate for hardy geraniums, there are a number that should work for your conditions.

They're annuals but with any luck self seed freely.  If necessary you can then carefully transfer them to where you want them.

Yes, Dove, we must hang on to that thought! I'm just not very good at sitting at my laptop trying to work out what's happening - my boredom threshhold is very low.

I have just opened 'My Reviews' and find over 1300 reviews have been attributed to me.  Total nonsense, I haven't ever done a plant review.  Someone please take them away.......!  Would be good if I was notified about responses, like it says on the packet, but that doesn't happen.Currently finding navigating the forum very frustrating...

Sorry markh, but you really should try and dig out all the weeds, they'll only come back and haunt you later - depending on what you call a weed of course.  Personally, I'm not a great weedkiller user but it is one way.  Are the weeds (and situation) of the type that you could take a small  flame thrower to them?  At least  you'd have some ash to put back into the ground!  Good luck..

I add my voice to not getting notifications - but then I've only just joined......

Keep the blueberry very well watered - perhaps you'll have to wait until next year for proper signs of life.  Passionflowers are usually fairly forgiving.

Acer Help please

Try keeping it out of direct sun and sheltered from any wind.  They don't mind shade.  You've probably lost the leaves for this year but hopefully it'll rally next.  Good luck.

odd aquilegias.

They're lovely and smell good too.  The ones on the beach got infested with a lupin aphid and disappeared, they're sort of coming back now.
