Many Thanks Bob for the advise as well as being a gardener you have to be a doctor for these guys

My main advice would be if you want it this way to have something flowering from Feb/March right the way through till Oct/Nov from spring bulbs through to summer perennials and shrubs as the main backbone during the winter to hold shape.

Hi I have some Dahlias that have had the side shoots which connect to the main stems break due to the over night winds, as I forgot to add canes for them. Where the tear has take place will the dahlias (not sure how to put it) plant structure heal and repair that area or would you have to cut the main stem further down.
Thanks for any info

I hope I have done the right thing I just cut it off sprayed with some pest spray I have and is in our green collection bin which the local council collect which I think goes in an incinerator

Hi Dove It was from an ebay seller in Norfolk I let her know early this morning and she does not like spraying but she said she is checking over everything today at her end and spraying if she has to or may just cut the leaf off and burn. She did give me a refund which I did not want but she insisted

Just had another suggestion that they could be brown marmorated stink bugs so have cut the leaf off and disposed of the leaf.

It is stunning B3 looks even better in person with those petals in the centre , I saw it last year at the hardys stand for Gardeners world live but they ran out thanks to Carole showing it the night before on GW , so managed to get it ordered this year from them.

Buy from Joe ann cheap and great plants she even delays delivery depending on warm weather so they are not held up in sorting offices.
Ebay shop: http://stores.ebay.co.uk/jo-anna-cottage-plants-shop
Also recommend Crocus, claire austin, Plantsforshade, peter Nyssen brought from all these excellent quailty plants and bulbs from Peter Nyssen are great price and lots of variety if you want something different Dutch Garden World are excellent as well but you can pay with paypal and amounts in euros are converted when purchased to pounds http://www.dutchgardenworld.com

Thanks Beaus Mum I think I am gardener that likes having plants in weather they go together or not but I do try to do the basic right plant right place. I did lose a couple of plants from seed in that heavy wind we got at the end of may start of June but most came through , love that purple poppy opened today I did that from seed so more happy with that
