August replanting in terrace pot

Posted: 23/08/2015 at 16:24

is anybody able to please help me with suggestions for late summer planting in the dozen or so troughs & pots on my Guildford, (Surrey) terrace ?  We had trailing lobelia & petunia & fuchsia in them, giving a real show, but they've all gone-over now, & I am really hoping I can have the terrace looking beautiful for another 6-8 weeks or so?  ???? can anyone help me ? 

thankyou ????

the bluebells in my raised bed, & under the trees down here in Folkestone, have died now  & need trimming or removing.  Can you please advise best procedure now?  The NEW gardening team that come in every two weeks to mow the lawns here in this communal garden, started digging up my bluebells in the raised bed I look after. having planted new crocosmia in the bed last month, I don't want the soil disturbed, so I stopped them digging up the bluebells........because they have been the only colour since the daffs died down, & I want them to come up again next year.

Can I de head them, & wait for them to died back, just like my daffs ?    Be grateful to know what to do now? Heard mention of invaders "Spanish bluebells"  on Springwarch tonight !   Should I have let the gardeners dig up my bluebells then ?  ?  "Confused"  ???? - thanks, Tads ????
