Weather's broken here, tubs nicely watered through the night and rain forecast  everyday on the GW report, which I am pleased about. Temp down a bit too. 

Just gor a couple of dozen Gaillardia to plant out,  a couple of Cannas  and some primulas that Hostafan gave me and I have finished, well, as much as you do finish!!!!

Dad's got his radio on, OH got the TV on, they are both keen on the Women's football.

what to do next with these plants?

I think you will need to take the plunge Sanjy, Its July, you will lose the season soon. May as well take the chance. I have put almost everything out now, regardless of size and they have grown almost overnight. they will soon be starved in the little modules.

The cornflower are annuals as well, but they will self seed for next year or you can collect them and sow in March. 

I would put the stocks out as well. mine have almost finished flowering now but yours may overwinter and flower next spring.

I wouldnt be planting those delphiniums out until next Spring, if they are small they will be gone by the morning, slugs will have them off to the ground.

The stocks need chopping down by a few inches, they are becoming leggy

I would have put the cornflowers out before, chop the back and plant out. They will die at the end of summer.

I thought the wedgewood salvia was an annual? There again, pick the middles out and plant out.

Fuchsia and capsid bugs

Posted: 29/06/2015 at 12:29

Is it an outdoor fuchsia, if so, they are hardly out yet. 

Did you see the bug, most times its the vine weevil do damage on fuchsias, if it is you can either buy Provado vine weevil killer or nematodes. By now the bug will have laid eggs and the grubs will chew the roots.

It will sprout out again, but will flower much later, everytime its stopped, it takes 3 weeks to catch up. But if you really dont like the dead bits, chop them out.

I never cut back any fuchsia, hardy or not, until the Spring.
