Lou, is there a nursery locally?  Much cheaper and usually much bigger.

i planted 40' plus to edge my veg patch and they cost me very little...cannot actually remember even though it was last autumn ......and I add a couple of freebies and discount. 

Any idea what this is ?

Welcome Emma.  Love my grasses and there are hardier equally colourful varieties you can use and will thrive. 

Have you got yours yet?

Lou, you would be most welcome 

it has been really warm here again today but even though England can match our temps the cornish people and climate are far, far superior

Penesetum Fireworks - are they dead?

Linda, if they are outside they will be dead.  

ironically they are sold in the late summer when they look at their best ....but only for a few weeks and that's  it.  They are often sold as plugs earlier in the year but avoid them...they rarely make any size

just research as much as possible Hazel but allow for gut instinct too.   

Clearly few people know very much...the more I hear and read the more I realise that. 

talking this morning with a group of small businessmen the consensus was that EU rules are killing them.  The possible influx of huge numbers of people was a worry expressed too.  This is in Cornwall where we still have space.  goodness knows how it will be for you guys in population high areas 

whichever way this thing goes at least views are being aired here.  This is good
