Gardengirl, not ideal right now.   However, when did you plant it?  If over the summer you could move it but get as big a rootball as you can.  Water it well but then leave it 

heathers

Hosta, Hosta, Hosta !!!   I is shocked 

heathers are delightful.  Evergreen. Reliable in flowering. Can provide spectacular winter flowers and foliage.  Aa ground cover they are superb.  As specimens they can be eyecatching.....a large white or purple or pink erica carnea in flower late winter/early spring lights up those dark days.  I have a border of winter heathers with yellow foliage and dark and green and even without the flowers they look attractive all year round 

heathers?  A must 

Annoying relentlessly spawning weed/plant

Was a problem for me too.  Weedkiller and digging with trowel though has practically eradicated it.  If you are thinking about hoeing why not dig instead?  Just make sure you get the bulbettes...!

Punkdoc I will try to send the sun your way.  I understand hot headedness too but best to stay calm.  There must be better ways of dealing with this guy

it seems the warm weather is very much in the south right now......in my garden its pretty warm.  Yesterday sfternoon it got quite hot.  No doubt though it will all switch and we will get the cold stuff.  Temperature must be 20 here but prob only 17 in the big outdoors

Bit enthisiastic today....maybe too enthusiastic . a border that I enjoyed this summer I have now attacked with impulsive vigour.  a large miscanthus Gold Bar has been lifted....weighs a ton.....and divided leaving a large space. I intended to  replant a divided piece there.  However, it has opened the area and gives it a better balance.  it gives me places for some gems I have in pots (all summer) and the miscanthus can go in 2 different spots elsewhere.  A large chunk will be given to someone so no wastage.  A word of caution though, in small gardens miscanthus will need splitting every 3 years or so or you will have a mountain to shift. 

take a cuppa out there in a mo to plan my planting.

Exactly plant pauper......that green sward is so relaxing to see and be on. 

decking and concrete as options?  Cold, dead and dull 

Geum Totally Tangerine

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