Gardeners delight can be grown as a bush variety.  for me it is the best tasting, best producing and most disease resistant tomato Jonesk.  Marshalls, suttons....they all provide online 

Growing Hakonechloa

Division is successful if reasonable size clumps are taken.  No need to dig up plants either.  a sharp spade is all you need to take pieces off

Esp with white varieties.

Growing Hakonechloa

Posted: Yesterday at 18:32

I grow several hackonechloas and they do not need rich feeding. I have them  2 metres wide in the ground but also in large containers.

for me they need moisture...in containers they need a saucer under them.  

Darrenbrian, who said you need such a low ph level?  Coir and bark?  How long have you had them growing in this?  I think you are overthinking this.  

I apply a light dried manure/mpc mix over them in early spring.  They grow in sun (brighter foliage) or in partial shade for me

Salvia...."prairie" planting?  Lovely . heleniums,,agastaches and salvias like Amistad will assort well with grasses like calamagrostis, stipas and deschampsias

Sparkles.....as with your hellebores....contact Suttons for a replacement. You will get one.

Perennial Foxglove?????

I had high hopes for Illumination Pink a couple of years ago but they have proved a huge disappointment.

last year I had several "ordinary" white varieties that were delightful.
