Great, was thinking of just yellow/orange colours but of course it doesn't matter if flowering at different times in the year does it; thank you.

I have a fairly new herbaceous border but struggling with what to plant to avoid complete bare area for later in year plus spring.  Currently have rudbeckia, helenium, helianthus, aquiligea, geum, crocosmia, penstemon. Up until now looked like a huge patch of dirt only - heavy clay soil, south facing.

Holes in my laurels

Our hedge had the same problem and responded well to a seaweed feed and watering.  Acts quicker than normal feed. Problem known as shot hole.

Please see 2 photos which show both problems. The hedge does eventually loose most of its leaves.  Some of the new growth can also be affected. Many thanks.

Laurel hedge

Our laurel hedge which is approximately 4 years old has continually developed browning tips and yellowing of leaves which then fall off.  There is always plenty of new growth but new leaves then follow suit.  The hedge is planted in clay soil and not sure what soil preparation was initially carried out.  We have tried growmore, seaweed feed,  more watering.  However, it is a fairly damp corner and wonder if the problem is actually waterlogging of roots?  Can anyone help??
