That's it Marion, I just couldn't think of the right word
Rocks is something I have plenty off, we have build a dry stone wall with what's been dug out of the garden so far, and I have only just started the garden

Veg beds at front - how to make them attractive

Not sure you can put pic on via i phone, you can't with iPad and I can't with android. I think you need the tool bar and you don't get that on mobile devises.
I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

japanese anemones

I have saved more than I had hoped for, just had a walk about!

Delphiniums, lupins, erygium, honesty, alliums, some big thing begining with Z, ? something like a lily, (or maybe is a lily). Sambuca, geranium been there all winter so must  be evergreen, few more things, hebe, euonymous etc.

what I have lost though, is the big tall echiums, I couldnt keep the fleece on them in the wind and they are black and bent over. Shame, I was looking forward to seeing them, they are like palm trees!

I am going to try moving some bits of the japanese anemone, maybe a bit later, not sure really when to try it.

Beautiful Marion, they really are a good all rounder, once you have them, you have them forever, well worth the money. Mine flowered right up to first frosts, and the greenery is still there now.

I have never tried cuttings, you say do them in about May/June then?

TIPS ........

My tip: We have all tried eggs shells as a slug deterrent, save the shells and pop them in the oven, just on the shelf, next time you bake, they come out even more spiteful and crunchy and a lot less messy to scrunch up.

I use the knee pads, keeps your knees dry as well as comfortable.
