My cosmos have been superb.  Flowering for 12 weeks I reckon.  I always pinch them out several times before planting out and a cut back in late spring.  For me they need good soil but no added fertiliser and not to be in the same position as the previous year.  Agree, full sun is important

Well done Mark

A job is always more satisfying when there's a bit of hard graft involved.  

Do the same with the borders......I mean break up not lay turf!......but choose your plants with some care.  There are some fantastic plants for,heavy,soil.

Salvia Amistad is brilliant salvia 4th panda.  Take cuttings from it now.  They will root very quickly.....mine took less than 2 weeks short while ago.  

Fairy......again, so impressive.  Wot a trooper.

Good morning,everybody.

I looked like George Clooney when born but improved as I got older.

Well, it's pouring with rain here and temperatures down to minus 3.   Apparently, its freakishly icy winds from the atlantic  Just suddenly become winter.  And I forgot to take in my tender plants.  So much for our summer

Trailing plant for chimney pot.

I grow convolvulous maritima in a chimney pot.  Maybe not evergreen but semi evergreen and cascades to the ground with velvety lavender blue flowers all summer
