They don't suit this garden Verdun, i don't think they are cottagey?  They love the acid soil, they just don't look right but  are very dense and makes a good shelter for birds nests. Dad planted them years ago, so .....

Lyn: It's like yard and garden .. check and cheque, trash can and bin .. 

I will do that, Johnny. I have just hatched a canna! YEAH! Begonias are a bit slow. Dahlia: taking cuttings but half perish because of the lovely JI bought from a diy store.  I am hatching sugar snap, Datura, broccoli (seeds 4 years old, can't bring myself to chuck them!). For hanging basket, I will buy some bidens and probably Laurentia.. Are there any other good plants to fill a hanging basket??

Large plug plants

Maybe a ladies hand is more gentle Perki, no disrespects😀 I have spit those tiny but but you do need to be very gentle, don't ram them into the new compost to tightly, leave the compost a bit lose, you will have to pot them up anyway, they won't be big enough to plant out and it's too soon,  

they may be a bit sparse the ones you buy are not that compact. Next year, have a go at growing some yourself, you can do it your kitchen.

I turned one of my veg patches into a bed last year and covered it with those, didn't mind the colours, it looked nice all mixed.
