Hiya winniecat

Its not a big border is it?  6' x. 6'.  Small tree may be too big there esp as ??ou already have some plantIng.  However, how about a Pieris?  I grow a variety called Flaming Silver......green and white leaves, red new growth and white spring flowers.  Evergreen too.  Not exactly prairie plant but would fit in.

Yes Mary, prob caterpillars.  I deter them by hanging a fine mesh drape across the door opening and window opening.  Dont spray....no point growing your own if you have to spray.  Often caterpillars are motionless on the stems or they are under the leaves.....difficult to see very often.  I find they usually focus on one plant.  

Thinking ahead

Hiya chris

Do you know the variety?  Is it a dwarf type?  If so ??ou could place a sheet of plastic or glass suspended over 4 short canes over it.  Take cuttings now too.  Fleece is good but it can amd does trap moisture.  Its the cold and wet that hebes don't like.  You could drape fleece over the glass and pin edges into the soil

Hiya Potty

Fuschias should take easily now. Get some,sharp drainage in pots and a poly bag and    You will soon have them rooted

Thanks Berghill.   Will,check it out.

You are spot on about the white cosmos fidget ...now the light levels are, albeit only slightly, diminishing the cosmos is shining .  Certain colours assert themselves now.  BLacks are difficult to display.....ophiopogon nigrescens, for example, has been tried everywhere.  It does get "lost" but in a terracotta pot it seems happy.  I also have it behind campanula Dicksons Gold and it looks good there too.
