Dave, i grew those Shasta daisy last year and they are now lovely plants ready to go in, they'll flower this year .
My campions are up as well.
I have some lychnis biz? Seeds, from daughters plant, if anyone would like some, I have set a few and they all came up quickly.

Geoff is correct on this, anyone saw the pics I posted of the waste ground outside our house with the snowdrops, well, I do the last cut mid October and again in mid April, they have come up and multiplied for over 20 years. They do not show any where near September. Last year, in the winter, I had tree fellers stomping on it and they were all fine, as you see in the photos.

I don't think it deters slugs either.
I put it in the compost heap because that's where everything goes.

I use the rain water in my washing machine, time consuming but worth it sometimes, it takes around 14 gallons, just for the wash bit, i couldn't believe it,

Lizzie, I grew penstemon from seeds last spring and they did flower, right through early winter. They are a good value plant.

Make sure first though that the owners don't mind you cutting into the down pipes.

When is it too late to a plant pot or root ball laurel hedge?

Posted: 17/03/2013 at 17:20
Laurel will tolerate almost anything, if they are in pots they will be fine as long as you water them, if they are bare roots, as I bought last winter, just dig a big hole somewher and plant then there , altogether, for now..
You will be hard pushed to upset common laurel. When you do get round to planting them in their final spot, pinch out all the growing tips, that will make them bush out further down.
