Actually, think the plants will love it.  Mind you I've got few delphiniums flwering for second time...they're well supported so should be ok.  Some lupins may suffer but I'm glad to cut them down now as  other  things are taking their spotlight.  

The thunder though puts us in our place.....the sheer power and vibration of that noise  makes me realise how puny I am.....well, not me but everybody else 

Where's Mike?

summer days

Pansy face.......your first summer's day??  It's been summer here for weeks.

However, I guess high summer is when heleniums, dahlias, agastaches, cannas and most else come together in an explosion of colour. So.....few more days yet.

CAN I OR NO

Think it's Phormium sundowner.  

You can divide it Alan.....spring is best.  They pull apart quite easily.  Cut top growth by half when you do it amd replant immediately.  

Phormiums generally look so AWFUL.  Few people seem to know how to grow them well I think.  I remove all old leaves in spring to allow the highly coloured young leaves to grow.  It will still flower if the plant had intended to.  Old leaves lose their colour and youthful flexibility so off with them
