Kashmir White likes rather better soil as well. Geranium renardii will put up with poor soil but like the sun. G x cantabrigiensis does better in shade and can cope with not very good soil 'Biokovo' is white(ish). The white version of Geranium macrorrhizum isn't as robust as the coloured ones but tolerates the shade. There's a white form of G. phaeum as well, good for shade

autumn sowing

Hi Asho. Baptisia and poppies yes, rudbeckia should be OK, not sure about the verbena though. I only sow really hardy plants in autumn and winter. Verbena I'd sow late winter, it will get the required chilling but won't germinate in a warm spell and get frozen

perennials can be cut to the ground but if they're stll upright and looking good they can be decorative in winter with the frost on them

Planting out now

Terruifying chicky. I remember painting our last house,  pebbledash or some sort of rough rendering. I got up to the top of the ladder on the gable end but couldn't let go of the ladder to use a paint brush

OH has got the top off the chimney to replace poor quality bricks and put a new liner in. I shut my eyes a lot but did supervise the bit where the liner met the flue at the bottom. I need my feet on the ground. Not a lot of gardening done, maybe tomorrow.
