Pete8, your Eryngium are absolutely stunning. I definitely want to get some next year.
No stars in my garden this year as had all kinds of problems with flies, bugs and everything that swarms and eats. So I've dug up an awful lot of established plants which just seem to be failing for one reason or another. Bit of a disappointing year so far when things should be at their peak.
However, I bought a couple of tiny little hanging terracotta things - hard to get anything small enough to actually sit well in them, but in the evening light they have a 'cute' factor with mini red petunias. I was also late doing baskets and managed to grab some cheap leftover wilting and damaged plants from B&Q and they are now coming along. So they are quite cheering.
