I sooo wish I hadn't asked.  After agonising have just bitten the bullet today & ordered 50 plants (money is an object but only buy charity shop clothes), then I read Jimbolena's horror story!  Should I send husband out to scrape off compost he's been putting on, or leave & mix into our clay soil?

Why did I ever start this.....

In which case, why is there not a photo of you on your profile?!  Thanks for your reply.  General concensus is that it's better not to mix, so will go with that.

Just been talking to someone who doesn't think it will work because Munstead is a bit of a thug apparently & Hidcote more compact.  But I too was thinking of blocks, maybe even white along front & the other two down the sides, but that might really look a pig's ear.

I'm thinking of alternating Hidcote with Munstead along a 3 sided border.  Will this work or will it look a pig's ear?  Please advise before I spend a fortune on plants!  Many thanks.
