That is snails, turn the leaves over and you might spot some.

Looks like phlox by the bud formation.

I love the Bella Rosella fuchsia, they are huge.

I did that Nut, they are still there, I won't be beaten, I will try again this year.

The reason I asked was because I sent them to several people on the seed swap thread and wondered if anyone else had any luck.

I am sure it's been discussed 20 times on here I haven't the time to use the search box though, and I know you like to tell the tale I make a hole like that, no fear of a stone getting in the way. My dad always reckoned rich ground made them 'hairy'

I tried to grow the seeds from my white Aconitum but none germinated, anyone else have any luck with them?

Lyn, first year for me with them. However, I cut them hard back when planted and, yes,,will do same this autumn.  They flower on mew wood......(did I say mew wood?  A CATastrophe???) Hydrangeas never really appealed to me except for the white ones but these paniculatas are lovely

I thought you only cut them back hard in Spring, Verdun? I suppose as you are that bit warmer it's ok.h

i am not that keen on them but they do fill a big space with no maintenance apart from a Spring hair cut. I have 44 here.

Do you cut those right down in Spring as well as the vanilla fraise, Verdun?

it is very pretty, I love the colour change.

How to mix Perlite?

I would think if the nursery planted them in containers, they wouldn't have planted them in clay, I would do as Edd says, just mulch in the Autumn.

So many places telling you you need this that and the other,buy this, buy that, use this food, put that on your soil, it makes me cross really.

Wait  and see how your plants do, make sure they will over winter outside, or make provisions for a frost free place for them in the winter.
