HELLO FORKERS!

Howdy there forkers .  Looks promising today albeit the threat of the odd shower is there 

Hope to comtinue planting up my new border.  Still just as much colour ...dahlias, for example, just as floriferous now as they were during the summer.....so not going to cut too much down just yet.

It looks like that would be burglar.  (had warning flash up then...think a swear word was anticipated there ) injured himself.  Apparently he fell on his back .....young guy with too much to drink..

Hiya nut.  I would plant out ASAP.  Not sure it would make much difference cutting the foliage back as it would be naturally dying down anyway.  

Be wary of where you plant them though..they will spread.....alarmingly so when established. ..and disrupt all other plants in the border.

I keep mine to about 70 cm and it's about 8 years old.  In the summer, when flowerimg, it adds another 40 cm or so but then it's trimmed back again.  Heathers not to your liking.?   I grow a mumber of heathers imcludimg one called Foxhollow whichnah s yellow evergreen foliage with new growth of orange??  Catmint is a shorter version of lavender but spreads a bit more.  Did you want something,to,hang over your edges or something to stand proud of them?

Cotswold Garden Flowers is good too and they have quite a range of dieramas.  

What's the star in your garden right now

Is the hardy sort of gerbera?  I can keep mime outdoors ... 3 years now.....but if in doubt pot it up and keep in the GH.  Remove dead flower stems and clean off debris amd water it.
