I have a net draped over the door to the GH and one over the open window to comtrol caterpillar damage.

Verbena bonariensis

I agree Matty.  Cuttings  are best if there is a lack of self sown seedlings.  Sooner the better and I would use a gritty or perlite rich compost.  And nice long reasonably thick ones too. 

good luck Matty

I think Mr Toast would like Marmalade Orchid   

Pretty hot here again.    

Heleniums are prob the most,showy plants right now.  Their reds, oranges,,yellows, browns are stunning.  I have several varieties and all are flowerimg their socks off 

I have noticed colour differences in my frikartii Momch plants.  One is distinctly more pinky lavendar whilst,others are more blue.  I recall buying Monch from  a nursery claimiNg  it to be either an improvement or a variant but cannot remember it's name.

Bonariensis also benefits from being pinched out when young and again in May time to,produce  shorter. (still tall) amd stronger flowerimg plants. ,

Matty, bonariensis is often sold as young plants in early spring in garden centres ...??

Not your question Matty but I'm currently digging up and potting self sown bonariensis seedlings......just as I do every year.  I rarely keep plants for more than one year....seedlings seem to make better flowering  plants.

Victoria, check out the numerous smaller nurseries, growers and suppliers. Often much cheaper with greater variety. I buy over winter online .....perennials need not be too big then,,not plugs though, and will grow fast in spring to produce medium to very large plants in summer.   And they are economically priced. 

For me they range  from woottens, Ashwoods, to  a host of others already memtioned in this thread
