For me Phormiums are adaptable.  Cream delight is a vsriety I think will do well there. Worth trying.  No, wouldnt put it in compost bag.  Best to use its contents in the soil.  I grow a variety ....or the life of me I can't remember the name but it's not common.....with very sharp dark green and yellow leaves in quite a bit of shade.  The name  will come to me though

Verdict....your new plants this year

Interesting David. Those  dwarf gaillardias are exactly what I have been looking at. Worth a try I think.  Only reservation remaining is that they look too,much like annuals !

Hmmmm, doesn't sound too good Victoria?

Fairy, I too have couple of Tiarellas that simply want to keep flowerimg.  I'm tempted to divide soon to make a front of the border group for next.  What's the betting they won't flower all summer next year then?

Durban is stunning for me Fairy.  It doesn't sound like Durban to me.  May post a pic of it if time permits 

What's the star in your garden right now

Lyn, the rusty nail treatment only works with a ton of the stuff   Old fashioned bluing agent.  Vanilla fraise is one of the varieties I thought about planting ....it should be "colourfast"

I guess your soil is acid Lyn....well, clearly it is.  The white hydrangeas should stay white.  What variety do,you have?

Latest with my mum.  She again has taken issue with visitors.  Also that the queen is coming to see her ......think she got that from her time  in Australia when the queen visited there.

I texted my brother to say he should see her.  He phoned to talk about HIM.....how busy he is, how our mum will die soon anyway, and say what a nice man he is.  True!  I think he is a sociopath.  He simply cannot see beyond himself.  He is not a busy man, lives locally and will spend every night in the pub.  

Clearly my mum is increasingly confused, frightened and tired.  Not nice to see or accept.
