As lomg as good drainage is given too.  Wet cold soil doesn't suit penstemons.

Could also be.....vine weevils.  Check soil. Usually this is autumn and spring but worth a look.  Try tugging the plant lightly.  If it,comes,away without roots you have vine weevils

At this time of year some Heucheras do get crisp, brown and die.   I cut whole plant back and water well.   New growth is rapid and holds until summer's end.  

This forum is a bit of a joke!

Seems to be working at mo.  I think it was Tina threatening to sing one of her songs that forced the fix.  

Any newbies to the forum, Tina is none other than the famous Tina turner, as in Ike and Tina turner.

This forum is a bit of a joke!

I have just pm Daniel asking that he inform us what is going on with the forum.  I for one am finding it difficult to post on now and to read the latest comments.

Agree with you Tina, not sure if anything I write is posted or seen by anyone.

Daniel must be aware .....hiya Daniel, let us know what's going on

There are a couple of technical issues at moment so bear with us
