Hey, salino, never met anyone else who grew wisley primrose. You got it growing superbly with the Phormium . Methinks the grey Helianthemums like it bit drier

What annuals can I sow for summer colour?

Ryan that's a great thread!
I'm more of a perennials man but cosmos, cornflowers, and marigolds. Blue cornflowers and orange marigolds...what a sumptuous combination!

pampass grass

Ornamental grasses like stipa gigantea, Calamagrostis brachytricha and Overdam are far superior to pampas grass in my opinion.

You can't beat wisley pink and wisley primrose Helianthemums. Two of the very best. Lovely grey foliage, evergreen and spreading with beautiful flowers.
They are hardy if well drained and in full sun. However, cuttings are simplicity itself. I grow several varieties and the Wisley varieties are my preference

Vinca can also become "gappy" so, for me not a great ground cover plant

Red dahlia, sentiment is so important in the garden.
Got a Happy Child rose in my garden for just that reason.
The past is important..not to be morbid about but to remember

Ryan, yes use your terracotta pots...bigger the better really but you can be as flamboyant as you like with the plantIng. The classy stuff is in your zinc planters. Yep, sow annuals now. Maybe open a thread, "What annuals can I sow for summer colour"?
I think you are going to have a brilliant arrangement us photos in mid summer?
