Oh I look forward to hearing how you get on Beaus Mum. Do let us know what he says. I was enjoying watching him plan and design his new garden and thought we'd be alongside him as it developed.

Deer at heads off my sunflowers - are they done now ?

I broke the head of one of mine last year by accident. I just left it, well, I cut it back to a pair of leaves and it sprouted again and flowered. I'd do the same with your lot, you have nothing to loose.

You could try a Hosta or Fern maybe, depends if they're in shade or not. Other than that, how about one of the many Heuchera?

I've grown several Roses in pots for a number of years. Use a soil based compost and add some farmyard manure a a mulch once a year. Twice a year, I sprinkle Rose Food around and water it in, that's it really. Most Roses will grow fine in pots provided they are'nt ramblers, even some climbers will be fine, provided the container is big enough. 

Apart from the above, it's a matter of which colours you want and which you like the smell of. Good luck.
