That's a perennial Keith.

Gardenspeak; annuals flower seed then die in one season, perennials live for years and come back and flower each summer

I think Liriodendron is probably right, definitely a Helianthus, and most likely Lemon Queen

Do you think when Keith said annual he means it comes every year?

I was looking for an annual.

I had realised that 'bush' didn't mean shrub

Lemon Queen seems very likely

I like hyacinths when they've been in the ground for a few years and spread a bit and lost that ungainly top-heaviness that Victoria mentions

Possibly a coropsis

Bricks for lawn edging

Hi Steve, don't know about cement

There are pros and cons to engineering bricks. The pros are longevity and frost resistance. The cons, or maybe just the one, they look like new, harsh, sharp cornered engineering bricks for years.

We went to a reclaimed yard after a hard winter and chose soft, kinder-looking bricks that had obviously been out there for ages without any sign of spalling.

But laid flat between lawn and border you wouldn't notice the sharp edges of engineering bricks would you

Chrome baby I missed your last post. You don't really need to dig, just loosen the surface a bit. 

There are many types of meadow mix and meadows but one thing they all have in common is a very scruffy run down period

 

Katzi, I googled wildflower turf and lots of sites came up but I've never used it so can't recommend one, sorry
