Clari. Hmm! Your fire engine may be difficult to park down here.  Parking, esp charges, is a big issue down here currently.  Risen by 40% this year.

18 degrees plus in this area today....more in my walled garden.....and expected to be same tomorrow.  Got few more delphiniums, foxgloves and echinaceas in today but siting the Buddleia buzz magenta is driving me mad......maaaaad, I tell you.  Looking for the perfect spot but, really, I will need to compromise.  Divided snowdrop clumps time I see them flower wwill be 2016.  Where is time going?

No imagination Punkdoc.  That's me!

although I also have a dwarf purple berberis behind another clump and I thought that looked pretty good too.

for me Eryngiums/sea hollies grow well on well drained sandy soilin full sun.  I also grow a variety called Jade Frost, a variegated form, that is a delight 

can't easily move them...they form a rap root.....but they are very hardy and easy.  

I have a yellow potentilla and euonymous emerald and gold behind and to the side

Often these "safety" bottles are so awkward that they spill onto hands, clothes, everywhere.  And they leave an amount in the comtainer that cannot be used

At least Mark them with a short cane Lucid.  However, they will do better if potted up and planted out in a couple of weeks or so
