Not Agastaches & even the Aceas this year in my garden, sorry. The latter are still reasonable, but look worse for wear.
Yes all these fine for me- Japanese anemones, Eryngiums, Euphorbias, hardy geraniums, Agapanthus, Erysmums, Alliums, some campanulas, Crocosmias, Penstemons, Antirrhinums, Fuschias, Veronicastrums, Verbena Bonariensis, Scabious, Calendulas, Phlox, Sidalcea, Violas, Sedums, Schizostylis, Day lily, Roses, Chelone (Turtlehead), Chocolate Cosmos, Heucheras, Dicentras, Thalictrums, Clematis, Ornamental Poppies, Mecanopsis, Lily of the valley.
The Rudbekias are just about hanging on, but not a single dahlia has survived, nor the Morning Glory & Black eyed susan.
Abandoned the sweetpeas & runnerbeans & salad crops- ha, forget it, but courgettes are fine, unlike last couple of years!
By growing my Cosmos this year in big pots I've not lost as many & at least have a reasonable show of flowers this year. Bedding- mixed colour Lobelia & Nastursiums are also untouched.
Oh well, have already got ideas for next year & need to source new Dahlias tubers. J.
