Had to remove Nipponanthemum nipponicum from the perennial bed - slowly each stem has browned. Roots were fine so I potted it and put it in the conservatory.

Deadheaded Cannas

Cut all the dead heads off the Cannas.


The Inkberry Holly near the pool equipment is browning so I dug it up. The roots on one side were gone and there was water in the base of the hole so I raised it up and replanted it - trying to leave a channel for water to soak into the flume it is planted by.

Planted a Red Knockout Rose in front to replace the Pink one that was supposed to be red.
