Swiss sue.  We do dress accordingly.  In Cornwall we spent the summer entirely nude except for when we had a bath or shower.  Then it was wellington boots time 

Woody has something there..... Look, it's not A....   It's simply late summer and it's not kidology.

Planting out now

Hiya pokhim

Aster little Carlowe. Rudbeckias, etc are tough and hardy.  If they are in reasonable size pots now then, yes, plant them in the garden.

Echimaceas, no.  Leave them until next spring.

Its a,good time to plant out shrubs and perennials,if they are hardy and of good size.  They will make good root systems now

Are your comments updating?

Most mildews this year have been causes by hot dry weather.  Most,people seem to think they are the result of dampness.  More moisture and most of those mildews will disappear.  Solution in the growing season is to cut off all foliage and water well

Edging for beds

I put in a concrete edge between,lawn and border. ,6" deep and 4" wide to,follow curves, etc.  Very effective, very natural and problem free.  The edges you can buy all,have flaws I think and many are too flimsy.
