Hiya Panda......plant shopping is perfect for job centre blues.  

What varieties of monardas, salvias and poker? 

No time for gardening today.......I guess it pretty much looks after itself right now...apart from grass cutting & veg picking.  Its even hotter than yesterday but pleasant breeze too.......and we are thrashing the Aussies.  Always been competitive with them since I was a small boy out there

Planted another anemone wild swan to large and tall group of imperata red baron, cut lawns, and contemplated moving canna tropicanna black.  

tropicanna black has surprised me.....a new canna for me, has grown enormous leaves and even has a flower spike since April and has outgrown its spot a little. I expected it just to be a small feature plant in its first year so clearly it will need more room next year.  I'm so tempted to dig it up and plant next to a white hydrangea.....tempted?  No.  It's exactly what I will do

Hosta, drive you mad don't they?  I've sung  silly songs that go on and on and on, acted dumb, repeated their questions, been angry,.pretended to be interested and then suddenly say no, etc.
