Thanks Hosta, sure I can combine everything if I keep them in check, especially 'the Brute'. Will hasdpen and halcyon be ok in pots? (took several attempts to spell that right!) There's an old hosta in front of the brick circle just coming through as well.

Like the idea of purple geranium verdun, it's on the list (will be ok in my 'sort of jungle' theme alongside cannas n stuff won't it, well even if not it's probably going in anyway!)

 Trimmed the bronze phormium. New plan! OH likes it and says it must stay. Not that MY garden has anything to do with him I really want to dig the brute out by myself? I've added an acre in a pot, think I'll also add some cannas and dahlias in pots for the summer. Would a blue hosta be too much?

If youre  about Hostafan do you have any suggestions? (copying Edds idea of bold text for particular people!).


Anyone done any gardening today?

In and out most all day. Digging, weeding, snipping and moving. Feels good.

Can I cut osteospermum right back (now) ? I just know there are some bulbs somewhere under the clump but they arent getting any light (gladioli I think but can't really remember)

back in a tick, gotta fetch OH from footie match (he only goes once a year)

Morning all.

Dove and Verdun, see page 28. in GW mag for lovely pic of. red hot pokers with rudbeckia (echinacea?)  ( wll that's what they look like to me).  I remember using the leaves as swords as a child. Never grown them as always seemed to be a blast from the past (ie old fashioned) but they are making a revival aren't they now. Not watched GW yet.

PD wish I was going to Harrowgate but instead will go to an ngs tomorrow
