You know keen he puts us all to shame.  We moan, complain and take it all for granted that we can walk, talk and function normally.

chicky,,Wild Swan has been superb for me...3 of Ruffled Swan.  

Agree many plants are over hyped...suppliers should compensate if said plants fail to perform.

What did you get keen? Sounds good value there 

weeded, planted and mulched another border.......poor hot soil up there with agastaches, penstemons, cannas, eucomis, sedums, guaras, baptisias, ceratostigmas,  helianthemums and shrubs.  Love mulching cos nothing transforms appearance better than mulching.

Never seen birds feeding on dandelions.....where have I been?

daisy lawns, dandelion lawns,,speedwell lawns, buttercup lawns.....all so romantic or nostalgic. 

Trouble is these weeds/plants will take over and,,eventually, there will be no grass at all.  Just as well have a chamomile lawn or make a flower bed !

Is my Broom dying?

Sonja,,are the stems green or brown? it should have green stems and small leaves.

no, don't prune. brooms will not respond to hard can only prune the new growth. Feeding will not help either. brooms, in my experience, are not good in pots. 

Sorry I think it has died but just leave it for now and see
