Nick, unless your soil is heavy or wet I would,remove most of that gravel.  Sure you can't use it elsewhere?

Staying dry and very warm

increasingly looking like rain so grass cut, more perpetuals cut back for full flowering in 3 weeks but so many things are about to flower that I wont notice them.  Got purple lobelia about to open in front of Double Trouble Helenium and frikartii monch too in front of moreheim beauty.

so ready for rain.....we need it now cos ground is very dry.  Hopefully it will be gentle, persistent and heavy later.  High pressure is returning over weekend
