I always have a picture in my mind of someone much as Clerington describes. Probably doing unmentionable things to himself as he reads our responses.
I agree, water in well to settle the soil and leave them alone for a while. Then do the same again when they start to dry out a bit. Cutting them back will make them bush out and there's less top growth for the roots to support in the early stages
I love lichens, they give a mature feel to a garden
That's the way to go Tracey, report then ignore button. Don't let him know you've even noticed
Are they all the same? there are some with longer, narrower leaves than others.
the majority look like antirrhinums to me
Before your time Stacey
Cut them back, I cut a big one back after a falling tree destroyed it..It grew back better than ever. Give it a bit of food, anything will do and a good much while the soil is still wet
They do re-flower but gradually diminish for me. Some groups are down to one flower this year so that's probably the last I'll see of them
I never notice where anyone posts anything. It all ends up in the same place.
I agree, good tempered plants. They can't take full sun on some of my soil though Lyn
Hydrangea petiolaris is a good one for a North wall.
Ferns and hostas go well in shade
