MAGGIE, I was so close to getting one two years ago but they are variable unless you go to a reputable grower.  

My advice?  Ignore the 3 on offer and contact Ashwoods to reserve a plant for the autumn.  One excellent quality full size plant to flower next spring.  Quality every time for me. you wont regret it 

What to do ?

A picture would be good Carol 

on one path here I have a planting of lavendar to separate veg patch and path.  Planted 40 cm apart they make a natural aromatic foliage plus high summer scent plus evergreen 

sometimes an edging is not necessary if planting is appropriate. 

Have you got yours yet?

worry not .  Acteas are late in shooting but yours will soon enough.  Tough, resilient  plants and James Comptom is one of the best.  Always best to mark it in autumn with a couple of short canes.

give it plenty of water in summer....hates drying out

Mossy lawn tips

Posted: 09/04/2016 at 09:51

Steve, lightly rake the grass removing dead moss etc

over seed is a good time.....and rake it lightly into the soil.   In a couple of weeks, maybe 3, your grass will look much better
