Sounds exciting Woody 

Having a renewed fondness for sedums right now, ESP now that I remember to cut  them all back by half in May.   Only 4 varieties now but all chunky and self supporting and flowering

Am I the only one not knowing what this thread is about?   Who is this Doctor Who!  Is he a real medical doctor?  Has he got his own programme on the  tele.?

I would scarify first if you can do it very soon. ,nematodes should be applied at this time

It looks a little starved to me .  However leave well alone for now but plant out next spring . Zebrinus, at least mine, has dark green leaves ( gold bands of course)  even now.   

Forester, yes for sure, your big mistake was not plantImg it out in spring.  It would have been double that size, at least, and prob would be floweriing.  Miscanthus  don't like to be left in pots like that ESP durIng a hot summer 

It's my birthday

Morning all

Sun n showers today I think

Decided to go for a pieris Flaming Silver or little Heath to plant in terracotta pot as a gift. Local centre has both plants .....and both are excellent, bushy and with late new growth (red leaves) .  Choice will be made this pm    Might even get both if I can haggle a deal 

Cant keep up with the tomato  and runner bean crops.  


White astrantia

One of the whites I've been considering is star of billions.  Its a compact variety with nice white flowers.    Sounds ideal with red brick richondac
