Can I interrupt and ask if Anchusa LR should have lots of roots?

I dug one of mine up a while back to try a root cutting but it only had two short thick roots. I replanted it as I was not sure how much I could take off the plant.

Can anyone help identifying this spider?

Spotted wolf from the same website perhaps?

Ive never looked up close but they look like the things I have living under the pebbles near my pond. They like to sit in the sun and dart about

Autumn Sown Hardy Annuals

Thanks hollie hock

It was more luck than judgement I'm afraid especially as I didn't thin them out. They were all over by July.

I've just received my copy of Garden News through the post (Sept 6 issue) and it has a feature on sowing hardy annuals that might be helpful.

Wow! It looks beautiful

What a nice thing to have done - it must have taken an immense amount of work. I'm sure it'll attract loads of wildlife.

The Hayter website looks quite helpful. They have an advice and support section.

Mine has to be Lythrum Blush which I bought as a 9cm pot in April. It's been flowering for two months now and I think will be a nice big plant next year. 

Worst has got to be Anthemis EC Buxton, planted in Oct which flowered and promptly died. I wonder if the surrounding yarrows requisitioned its water supply.
