New Front Lawn

if you want grassy bits sow over that tarmac Jenson.  removing the tarmac wont produce a posh lawn in itself but it will produce a better one.  A bit like rubbing down an area before you paint it.....

dig them up, check they are sound, let them dry thoroughly. When dry store in paper bags indoors frost free.

Hostas, hosta?  do you like them? . 

Brunneras not great I guess except in spring.  Lovely juvenile foliage and delightful blue flowers to rival those of forget me nots.

Escallonia went through a phase down here 3 or 4 years ago...they are grown everywhere here.  They seem to have overcome whatever it was.  They were cut back hard.  I have 2 ...Iveyii and Peach Blossom....Zinnia

Hello HannaN and welcome 

your plugs may need to be potted up....

lovely day but not much gardening either.   Cut down couple of heleniums that are now over....can't complain as they flowered all summer.  And a couple of agastaches too that have been just as floriferous .....and they flowered well too . Also cleaned glass and shelving in greenhouse.  Oh, and potted up rooted sunpatiens too.  Can recommend these.......much, much larger than the old busy lizzies.
