Gardengirl, snap....almost.  Got yellow cosmos plants on order. 

PP, "sticking up" bits???  A hedge should be either trimmed level on all angles without contrived bits unless a really special view can be enhanced.

couple years back I cut an old overgrown that it supported the distant view of St. Michael's Mount.  Further down, different angle I put in an archway....jasmine on that a view of Newlyn bay was framed.  Felt inspired as tho I was Mickey Mouse, er Michaelangelo

Lawn Weeds

yes, you can use lawn weedkiller now . lawn weeds.  Did it myself couple of weeks back.  

In contrast to earlier remarks, I use a feed only and separate spot lawn weedkiller to use whenever weeds appear.  A weedy lawn though benefits from weed n feed

help me find a plant with "Matilda" in it's name

why not treat yourself to a special or long wanted plant for the spring/summer?  It may not be a major purchase, perhaps a little cheery thing to look forward to after Frank and his cousins have done their worst?  

Got most on my current wish list but Dicentra Burning Hearts will do it for me.  Anything for you guys? 

can anyone identify this evergreen please?

"Wise" Verdun Hosta?  Wot you after?  Told you I' m not giving you any  more money 

keenbutgreen, don't be alarmed in spring by the changing colours on your pieris.  From red new shoots those leaves will, according to variety, change to varying shades of cream before turning green again.  It's at this time that I give one of my epsom salt sprays
