Thanks Gg ... I bought some at Malvern which I am going to underplant my Geranium Roseannes, and also, if any left over in my new "yellow" border. They will flower a bit before most of the yellows I think but it will get the border started, and I can cut them down to tidy. Can't remember the variety at the moment but will check when I get them out.
Today I planted my Asters from Picton Nursery with some Chrysanths and 3 Hydrangea Paniculata. In front of them , a Cristo Lloyd moment, is a drift of orange pokers. Jars beautifully.
Chicky, wish I could come to see Cleve. I wish BBC would give him some air time...running GW perhaps. Time for some new blood. He is a fav. of mine.
Just remembered that someone, quite a few days ago so I can't find who, said they were going to plant their rose "Complicata" in a pot. I have this one, which I saw in profusion at Mottisfont, and it is HUGE. It has loads of arching stems which stretch up to about 7 ft. and then sweep down to the ground. It really is my largest rose.
