Wow, there are quite a few cultivars I've never seen before on that page! The Autumn Pallet and Pigmy Torch were both really striking, in addition to some of the more familiar varieties. Thanks for sharing that! I'm curious as to how your growing seasons compare to different regions of the U.S. I've noticed that you don't have any 'zone' specified. How long is your typical growing season? I've only been to the UK once, and all too briefly, during a cold, rainy week of January. I've read so much about the stunning English gardens that I've always wanted to return and see them in bloom.

Hi Bookerc1
I apologize for taking so long to respond to your post, I don't look at the threads as often as I should.
Attached is a part of my garden.
I suppose our growing season in Kent (Southern England ) is March to October. From Oct. the ground is too wet and until March there is danger of frost. Perennials generally survive well as we never get below - 5 degrees, aren't we lucky?

Wow, Poppa, that is an incredible garden! I have to admit I'm a wee bit jealous that you never get below -5 degrees. I'm not terribly fond of cold or ice. :)
