Do ALL tall(ish) plants need supporting?

But....if you miss the six fifty weather forecast you will find those precious plants ruined for another year.  Delphiniums, for example, will flower again later but not in the same impressive way

Fine lawn seed or rye mix??

A couple of teaspoons in 5 litres of water but its not critical...its amount I use.   So 4 in a typical watering can.  You can use a watering can or sprayer. I prefer a sprayer because it is quicker.  Its quicker over the foliage and prob not wasted this way

Just read Dove's comments.....cannas here reach 9', veronicastrums more than 6', acteas much the same.  Grasses over 6'"....stipa gigantea 9'.  Plants for sure DO grow tall here.
