I am in the garden today trying to catch up on my weeding/clean up effort (seems like a loosing battle). Here is my list of "total goners".

Fancy Dress
Liaison
Edith Wolford
Crooked Little Smile

Thumb of 2015-06-12/Misawa77/a64cb0

I have also lost ten others, but I still have some of them left. I am working a bed that has a lot of borer issues, but this problem seems to be limited to just this bed.

The labels are Avery # 5523.

They are for out doors and very expensive; like $45 a package. But in the end, they are doing a lot better than the old method of perement sharpie marker on old stripes of cut up blinds.

I have Edith Wolford in a second spot! Who knew????

Thanks Tom; please add them to my "list". lol

Braggadocio to the goners list.

I am getting lots of afternoon thunder showers (with heavy down pour pockets) and will be in this pattern for some time. I am way behind in getting rid of the spent bloom stalks and fear rot issues. Got another bed cleared, but lost another 10 or so rhizomes.

For sure here too! Crying We've had over 6.4" of rain since May 31, and it keeps coming!
If that's not bad enough, the moles are plowing up everything in the veggy garden! Grumbling
