Oh, the violas were definitely dead - maybe they just hadn't had enough water in the heatwave - but I could deadhead the petunias. The problem is that, once a petunia bloom dies back, it's quite tricky to work out what bit you need to deadhead exactly.... Maybe I'll just give the whole container a late Chelsea chop?

The stipa's great. I appreciate it'll need transplanting out of those herb boxes eventually, but I didn't want it getting lost in the border for a year. I think that at its current size it's a good match for  the structure of the miniature herb plants.
