Planting looks great, I envy you with those lovely Lupins, I never have any luck with them as the D..n slugs & snails chew them down to the ground in the night Grrr! :o((

I'm a softie with slugs and snails, particularly snails, I think they are fascinating creatures. Every time I pick up a pot there is at least one clinging to the underneath so I am very careful. The lupins are needing cut back a little now but hopefully there'll be some smaller flowers still to come. They are so old fashioned and cottage-y, I love them!

That's a good idea. I do the same with things like Fuchsias in pots, and bulbs in the spring. They can be taken away after they finish flowering.

Very attractive, at first glance one doesn't even notice they are in pots, ...
