That's more good news 😄 I've lost a couple but not as much as I thought and I'm hoping heucheras improve once they dry out and I tidy the old leaves up, moved most of pots to front to try dry out a bit as soils soaked, some of salvias suffered but got cuttings of them all so will replace with new ones 😄 bring on warmer weather 😎

But it such a fab display 💟 mmmm I have a couple that have bolted and don’t know what to do with them 🤷‍♀️ read up a bit and it said they only look good for a few years 🤷‍♀️ but surely not I thought they lasted years and years 🤷‍♀️ not sure what to do with them I wonder if you could sort of like split them and see if they reroot 🤷‍♀️ doing a lot of shoulder shrugging 🤷‍♀️ here 🤷‍♀️😂😂
