decking and concrete as options?  Cold, dead and dull

Try deschampsias with TT Dove......."frothy" flowers to soften large plain green foliage of geum..?    Or Miscanthus variegatus  for tall clean white looking leaves....

Morning Dove

lovely ever blooming thing is'nt it?

easy though......dig up your clump.,,slice with spade or cut with serrated knife or saw.  Replant.  

Bought a plant 3 years or more ago and now have half a dozen large plants.  Will be dividing another soon.  don't be greedy though...not sure tiny pieces will be as responsive but Totally Tangerine as decent clumps move well

good luck Dove

Morning Amateur  veg grower.

as soon as germinating takes place and whilst plants are small water with nematodes.  Then cover with fleece.  The former controls carrot fly larvae.  The latter prevents the adult flies from laying their eggs.  This breaks the cycle.  

Not sure about bleach Phillip 

Soil. How good does it need to be, really?

Hydrangeas have re-appealed to me over past few years.  I appreciate them much more now....WHEN THEY ARE GROWN WELL.   Too many look thirsty, hungry and incorrectly pruned.  Given the right comditions hydrangeas are superb 

Librarians Garden,if you can provide reasonable moisture and enrich the soil hydrangeas are worth considering.  Consider the Paniculata types....called PG's by some.  They cope better in drier soils and in sun.  Their pruning is simple.....cut down or half way in autumn/spring and they will grow away fast and flower from mid summer onwards.  Limelight is lovely.  Kyushu is smaller but more delicate

Hello forkers 

took spike to beach at 6 30.  Warm. No wind. Big moon.  Light and bright. Peaceful 

forecast is good for a good while yet including weekend.  

Salvia Waverley ....just a small plant.....looking superb.  Will move to plant with a purple shrub, maybe berberis, cotinus or heuchera
