Plant sale was a wash out, only a few sellers turned up. Still , I came away with a lilac thalictrum (I think, best check the name again).
Then ended up at GC, tempted by a betula PANDA, no lie! Resisted and did a bit of tree porn when I got home, think the perfect solution will be betula Royal purple ( purple leaf silver birch, bark takes a few years until its white though). Will pop back to GC to ask if they can order it, otherwise burncoose ( I think or maybe bluebell, I looked at both!).
Happy evenings everyone. X

Lovely flowers everyone, I've enjoyed looking back on this thread. Mark, that tri-spotty-thingummy is gorgeous!
My huge cosmos is still going crazy despite the rain.
A rescue poppy from late spring has a flower on it now so at least I know the label is right.
8foot sunflowers just coming out - but pointing the wrong blinkin way!

Thanks both, its the flowering type and yes it is quite woody for a full lawn. I have 3 'patches' but none have flowered, oh well I'll wait and see what next year brings.

Does anyone know why my camomile lawn hasn't flowered this year? (apart from 3 or 4 flowers). For the last 3 years it has flowered very well. Thanks.

Morning all.
So is it official yet?... August is the new autumn ?
if so my unopened sunflowers have had it, but at least its autumn so I can start rearranging the planting. Ready to plant the new trees out but the GC doesn't know its autumn yet so haven't got a good choice in for me...
Roll on summer
have a good day everyone.
