erigeron grown a lot bigger than I expected, tawny king kniphofia - echinacea magnus - dahlia jura

Crocosmia lucifer - monarda scorpion - veronicastrum diane

kniphofia timothy - ammi majus 

Helenium sahin early been bashed around with the weather but the weather doesn't bother the eupatorium, veronicastrum fascination in background 

Monarda beauty of cobdam - echinops rito - allium sp - physocarpus daiblo in the background.

What will be left standing?

Already had damage from previous weather this year. Canna snapped half way up, dahlia on the deck, stems on scorpion monarda broke, heleiums miss shaped and most things have been on a lean at some point. But the garden recovers with a bit of help. Stakes and string at the ready Verdun

Yep ideal time now for a new bulb planter, the cutting diameter is decent at 7cm but not big enough for glodemaster, might get away with gladiator and mount everest alliums. I havent used it yet but it feels really well made and its got a 15 year guarantee.

If anybody interested I just bought J.Bentley long handle bulb planter for £16 including postage. Google - British Garden centres - press on Shop - page 2. 

Save me from the back breaking work with the small hand handle ones which I tend to bend in all shapes.

Well to me the picture of your phlox looks more red than pink which made me think starfire or possibly another red variety. Windsor is a Pink variety so I leave you to decide which one it is

dahlia david howard is my favourite dahlia as well, shame the slugs nibbled the tops off. 

Have a look a phlox paniculata starfire see if that matches.
