Phlox paniculata, Asters, Chrysanthemum, Rudbekia. Helenium, Achillea, Hollyhock, Echinacea, Jap Anemonies, and Hibiscus, are all starting to come out in my garden this month. Also Grasses can look good swaying in the sunlight.

Thank's very much for your idea's I have bought a penstemon picotee red and a geum koi,Irealise that the geum is an earlier flowerer but as I a yellow geum in the same bed I thought they would look nice together. I have seen a couple more at Morrison's and as they are like the other one's are two for three pound's I will be able to get them later they had a good choice :-))

If they're still there in Morrison's next time you go! I find that bargain plants are often snapped up and have all been sold when you go back later. I've learnt to buy them when I see them.

I have been lucky so far Beattie they always seem to have them in when I have the money, they are nice healthy plant's as well :-)

I agree - I bought some bargain shrubs from a supermarket last week. They're not rarities, but they're for an exposed position, so if they succumb I won't be heartbroken. They were in nice condition when I got them.
