Ive decided to do away with lupins in my border although I really like them they are over now and look very straggly. Im going to be brutal and take out a hardy blue geranium as well. I started last night but was forced in with the midges. Im thinking compact plants have to be hardy(highlands, Scotland) any suggestions.One idea I had was of  sweet williams for lots of colour. I have a cottage garden Id say with neat grass and edging.

Candelabra Primulas.

Went to Harlow Carr today, candelabra primulas were looking stunning, particularly the mixed colours, primula viali too.

 Primula Viali doesnt survive with me is it not so hardy?

Hi Kate, I don't protect it it dies back to underground unlike the gunnera that has a crown to protect and we've had minus 25. I bought new candelabra primulas for this border in mixed colours and all have turned out yellow. I bought them from Parkers and after reading about Parkers on this site I wish Id read the reviews of the company first they certainly don't come across well..

Ive just come in from the garden its a lovely night but the midges are so bad!!!

Kate the big leaves are the Umbrella Plant or Indian Rhubarb I don't know if its a gunnera but very like one. Its bigger than in the photo now, it must be all the rain.

It was hard going getting about in the snow at 3ft and I'm not 5ft

Were having chicken Korma tonight. Don't we all eat well

Hi Matt,

Hows it going with your puppy? I watched Marley and Me yesterday thats just us with our wee Jack Russell. Ive never known a dog to have so much character with such facial expressions too. He is far more obedient than our other terrier but when he sees a bird thats it nothing stops him hes in there.. He will come out in his time, at least 'two plants broken' time!!, with his head down knowing himself hes bad and I just have to walk away and now have to think that one day he wont be as daft or agile but when!! Hes just so not garden friendly. We just love him to bits I hope your getting on ok. Ps he loves the water pistol now
