Thanks everyone, and thanks to Verdun for reminding me that however worried I am it is much worse for my mum, especially knowing that she will be completely dependant on me.

Sorry to hear about your Mum Verdun.

I am off to look after my Mum for a few days. She goes into hospital for an operation on her eye. Unfortunately it is her only functioning eye, so she will be blind for a few days afterwards.

Verdict....your new plants this year

Dahlia HS Wink series have been retina searing bright, need sunglasses to look at them.

A rather nice purple perennial Lobelia, grown from seed, name unknown.

Scabious Chile black, suspect it wont last the winter though, so will need to sow more seeds next year.

Indoor Seed Propagator

It depends what you want to use it for. Many perennials and hardy annuals will do just fine on a window sill, or in the conservatory, however if you want to grow more tender stuff then a heated propagator is very useful.

I have a very old one with no thermostat and start of all my tender perennials/annuals in it.

Tree ID and transplanting advice please

Unless they can be dug out with large root balls, having previously had a large slit trench dug all around, with time left for them to develop a new fibrous root system, I think that you are on a hiding to nothing.

I would buy new smaller trees, which will grow quickly, plus you can also choose exactly what you want.

what will go with Delphinium summer nights

The Lychnis would be lovely, the greyish foliage would work well with the Delphinium flowers.

It is what used to be Eupatorium chocolate, but has now been given a new name which I cant remember, or maybe never knew.
