Bulkerb, yes post your photos.  If you are asking for frank opinions we will give them

So, any comments made now would be pointless 

Hellebores

Keep us posted aym during the summer to see how they progress.  Agree with GD, it's the roots that are most important right now with hellebores esp so I would pot on asap 

Beware bark chippings!

Green Magpie I think that's rather an odd conclusion. B & Q would be in big, big trouble if there chippings were so toxic 

Salvias...what am i doing wrong?

Either 1634 Racine but now I would wait until end of August . Divide into 3 and plant out as a group for terrific impact next year. 

Lyn, 

I was a bit lazy there...microphylla Violin Music.  Yes, odd name but a beauty with different sort of blue colour.  More woody as with all micro's 

cosmos,

My, Caroline ...you are toooooo keen

for the very best cosmos have patience.  The sequence of regular pinching back and frequent potting on will produce fantastic cosmos.  Don't let them flower at all for a few weeks and you will be pleased with yourself.

in summer my cosmos are 4' plus tall, big and bushy and self supporting and flowering then well into autumn.

Caradonna is best divided 1634 Racine and, yes, it is as tough as old boots 

Anyone done any gardening today - Version 2

Looks like I need to take advice from you then Sue 

i have a couple of pretty big ones but I cut them back every year to produce bushy plants as well as giving me cuttings for more plants 

Is my Canna ok?

Have to worry sometimes or they wont grow and you will have wasted your money landlubber 

I don't  "worry" but I do care that anything I have will thrive
