Hiya Cranlan.  Warm welcome 

would you ???

no contest Steve.  Get rid of that poor imitation of grass.  if growing well and looking good I would always have grass in my garden but what you have is hard work for an ugly looking spot.

you have it dry shade (those oaks) or damp shade?  put some beautiful plants there to give you pleasure all year round with some individual specials to lift your spirits.

How can you STILL not be paid Clari?  You seem remarkably calm about the whole thing.  Who writes the cheques?  Enjoy your day anyway.

Late Hellebores?

The christmas rose...H.Niger usually flowers way before xmas until about now.  The lenten hellebores can flower at any time according to whim but usually from early Jan to spring.  I have hellebores in full flower,,some just starting and others not yet.  

Reputedly hellebores do not like being moved but for me they are not.  Get  a big rootball ....they go very deep......and they will be fine

Supports for delphiniums need to be at least 6' long and one per stem.   Support needed to very top.
