KKC, do you simply mean to know if your soil is acid or alkaline?  Cheap easily understood PH test kits are readily available

Hello forkers

no sun right now...its promised....and dry and quiet 

davids10 I have lysimachia beaujolais growing for first time.  New plant to me so what can I expect this year from them?  Currently 6" mounds of foliage and I anticipate arching spires of burgundy flowers about 60 cm tall?

hope you survive whatever your Company throws at you today

Firstly, love the pun Berkley

panicums are warm season grasses.....miscamthus cool season so grow earlier.  So, no, don't despair over your Panicums ......have no doubt they will be just fine.

I cut all the old leaves off and all dead or imperfect leaves from phormiums...amazing the difference to the look of them

wont answer the hosta question cos I'm sure the Master will offer good suggestions.  

However, that bronze phormium is crying out for a purple or blue hardy geranium I think MrsG

Ah!  Get it now Panda. white sink and black ophiopogon. Pandas do like their white and black don't they? 

for me a white kitchen sink in the garden looks awful. ,it could be plunged into the ground I guess
