Plants for new border

Agree with grasses......for earlier summer flowers look at calamagrostis Overdam amd Karl Foerster.   Stunning.  I still have their winter structure ...withstood all the recent storms.

Punkdoc, please take no notice of you know who.  I for one look forward to your comments.  

I notice the wind up merchant keeps his threads going....after a record I think...all by himself and that is weird    Really weird fellow 

We all know who this weirdo is .....Just use the ignore button. Can we ignore threads too?  I,would like to know that .  Would solve everything

I love the spam song as superbly performed by Monty python.  However can these spam posters be denied at source by the moderators here?  

The spams don't really bother me too much.....I just flick past them.....but this morning there are a lot of them.  

Not sure what options Daniel has but surely they can be prevented...?

KEF, happy birthday.  Hope you have a good day 

No idea what weather will be today but it's nice n bright right now...looking good for dog walk

Hope everybody has good day 

Ashleigh, most Heucheras are evergreen but some better than others. I remove all leaves late autumn anyway.  They are better for that treatment.

Mmmmmmmm cheese 

Tracey, something evergreen with red leaves?  Uncinia and carex like buchanii are evergreen and red. ,euphorbia rubra is evergreen and maroon.  Heuchera berry smootihie is evergreen and a beautiful shade of red.  Some of the bergenias are evergreen and red.

Hiya tracey

Could you add too how sunny or not your garden is, how quick draining it is, is it light or heavy?  ??ou reckon it is alkaline too but do a PH test anyway.  Then we can go to town with suggestions.

My reply was ....on other start again.  I really don't think it will regrow and you will have to put up with an ever worsening dying plant.  Plant again with something else and enjoy it
