Santolina?  artemisia powys castle?  winter heathers?  Heucheras and festucas?  Euonymous emerald n gold?  Berberis atro nana?  Pittosporum tom thumb? Lonicera nitida Baggesons Gold DWARF variety (sorry, name escapes me for now)?  Ferns? Perovskia LITTLE spire, dwarfer version of well known variety? Hemerocallis, esp variegated Golden Zebra?  Dwarf hebes!    However, check out Diosma Sunset Gold...this is a beauty.  Lovely "moving" foliage, delightful pink/white flowers right now, evergreen and requires little attention

Bought 4 variegated pelargoniums this morning....not for me; already have them.  Good quality, good size amd good price at (£2 each). However, I said " I'll pay for 2 and you can gIve me 2 for free" .  hence 4 for 2 !     Bit of cheek always pays 

sun has now appeared.  Looking good now

You do better than I do fidget.  

To be honest I'm not really great with seeds....too huge respect to all those who do that. 

However, do you see self sown seedlings?  I may just do that too

No your timing was fine Jennifer . They will grow quickly

yes It did. Now have the n wishes, embers wish and wendys wish.

never known patens here to set seed...I divide them every year or two .  

I guess a garden entirely of salvias would be quite a sight in the summer
