Spot on nut.  

Never put two hostas together in my book even for colour contrast.  

Where will I put them all?

If it's just beside the pond and not  overly boggy, consider a dierama.  Wonderful reflections in the water.  Astlbes, ferns, acteas for leaf colour and structure.

For simplicity and evergreen foliage and nice blue sprimg flowers how about vinca major Variegata?

Bex, cancel parkers.   Look, when your plants arrive from them you will know what most of us are talking about.

Check out Paddocks Plants.  Excellent quality for about £4 in 2 litre or bigger pots.

Stacey, gadgets....the latest.  Economy .......60 mpg from  petrol......currently a diesel No road tax.  Long warranty.  Touchscreen.  A great part exchange deal.  

Had all that and ready to sign today and noticed I was being offered different model.  I am a confusing fellow but the salesman was surprised too.  

When I got back to my car there were pools of water  coming from the headlamps....he had been crying.  Thought I left him behind.  Aah!  I love my old car really ...it's just that he has served my purpose and he is of little materialistic use to me now

Bex,

Dont buy shrubs from parkers.  They will be tiny pathetic things.  bulbs are fine.  Not perennials, shrubs etc.

Jacksons are good...I,have ordered from them before and had good size plants.

Check out the thread on good  online nurseries.  There are some excellent suppliers out there.

Sorry bex to be so forceful but buy plants in good  size pots .....none of those plants are unusual or costly
