Agapanthus versus Dandelion

Yes, carefully paint with glyphosate.  It won't dig out or be pulled out. Cutting only makes a bigger plant. 

Did you remember to turn your clocks back?

Ha ha KEF.  I recall that person....remaining nameless.......believed me 

HELLO FORKERS!

Sorry David K.  Hope you had a good birthday 

Moved a heucherella....stoplight .....again today.  Can't decide where it's best.  Lovely thing but it's been moved 3 times lately.  Best soon but "lost" in summer so it needs to be seen now but not so much later.  Fussy me!  

Yellow is the colour.......

Spring is meant to be gaudy,,brash and in your face.  So,much yellow looks right and again in autumn.  Like a little more subtlety in summer.  One of my fav brooms, Lena, is loud with red and yellow soon and suits spring light.

I have,Heuchera Obsidian next to hosta Patriot for colour contrast but I prefer a change of form....grasses like the red buchanii and hakonechloa sets off Heuchera berry smoothie. And flowering perennials like anemone Wild Swan with its white flowers also sets off dark Heucheras like Plum Pudding.  I also have verbena Rigida, a  good dark blue,  near hosta fire and ice.  

So, yes hostas and Heucheras look good together but best mixed and matched with other plants, for me.

Fire Island was in a 9 cm pot but potted on this morning.  Looks good so far with butter yellow leaves and red stems.   Yes will post a picture when slightly bigger.  It's a learning curve with brand new varieties isn't it?  To see how it copes in sun, etc. 

perennial plug plants

I would not buy all those plugs....some you may like but prob many you wont.  Better to spend money on plants you really want.   Get some perennials you like and then sow annuals to fill in for the summer if you need to.
