thanks, Mark, I'm pleased with it - I'm working on tbe "less is more" theory; the less I do the less chance I've got of making a mistake.

Ive got some of these growing in my pond Fran. You wont go wrong with it - its a good doer and tough as old boots. I would split it in two when you repot it to get more plants for free.

Thanks, Poppy - IN your pond? mine's beside the baby bath that's going to be a pond when I get round to it.

Lol if I have to buy the same plant twice, I count that as a failing; I expect to increase stock as I go along.

:-)) Im sure you'll have no trouble with this one Fran. It'll look lovely in the baby bath/pond. I didnt realise until recently that alot of grasses are not winter hardy - Most of the pretty ones, so Ive had alot of failures!

touch wood, most of mine seem to have survived so far: not that I've got that many. Once I've reppotted everything I want to change the layout, to surround the bath with grasses and smaller plants in front to make it as much a green oasis as I can.
