Duh! Trying to work out your penultimate sentence Top Bird.  

I'm left handed but can write equally well with my right and do most everything with both hands.  Been a great advantage in sports when I suddenly changed hands to serve etc.  

why would the (superiorly gifted) left handers want to claim they are right handed?  (with the hoi polloi) 

Bargain time of year!

Oh, meant to say.  Called in at local B & M store and thet surprisingly have quite a range of plants...mostly small but cheap

picked up helenium ruby tuesday and white salvia for £1.  Pots were dry and worth haggling for. Now potted up for plants for next year.  By next spring they will fill 3 litre pots

O Verdun, Oracle of All the Grasses, hear me!

B3 I can never resist a debate....or agitate for one.  All harmless though 

Grasses can be addictive though....coloured foliage from red to white to yellow to blue to olive to.......

and, some are evergreen some not.  Some very tall some short.  Some invasive some well behaved.  Some for acid soils some for alkaline. Some like moisture some like it dry. They add another dimension to the garden though.  Right now I have several grasses at their peak from a 9' plus gigantea to a scirpus cernuus (a delightful fibre optic looking plant) Wouldn't be without them

Welll whatever you do Daisy doo, don't plant your astrantia (whatever colour it is) in a dry spot.  So many astrantias  are lost because are allowed to dry out
