Fairy, yes I get the impression punkdoc's ahead of me in the canna stakes I only have 4 or so varieties, I,think, but lots of very large plants.(prob 15 or so) Need to get more because they are so different ro anything else from mod summer onwards almost into winter.
On GW last night Monty potted on some cannas. He also added 3 dahlias. ,over the top I think,because that canna will fill that pot itself in 4 weeks.
Dove, I went for Walter Funke and Moonshine. The plants at the GC were drying out fast so went for best condition ones. Moonshine is now between salvia Amistad and Veronica with dwarf white dahlia, agastache fiesta, linum perenne (fronting berberis atro pur nana) and osteospermum voltage yellow to the front on the sunniest side. Eryngium jade Frost is a fantastic plant that is also in that area.
Dove, achilleas are almosf like weeds here but are good "doers".
It is scorchio.
Promised my mum a walk in her wheelchair (sounds odd that doesn't it?) along a plant packed walkway overlooking the water. Everybody smiles there, no traffic and peaceful. Might even get an ice cream so I had better shoot off.
Did I say, it's scorchio?
