At the last evening meeting of the Kenilworth Gardening Club we had an excellent speaker talking about gardening with shade. So with this in mind, I walked round the garden finding some of the plants he mentioned like this Epimedium, and have made a mental note to pot some up for sale later in the year.
I know a couple of friends who would like some cowslips, so will pot up some seedlings for them. I originally grew these from seeds, which were planted in my garden, three houses back. We always seem to move during the hottest and driest parts of the year, but I have managed always to bring a few specimens with me.
These Anemone Blanda, I bought from a market in Kings Lynn not long after moving here, and have managed to encourage the seeds to germinate, and they brighten up the spot under the plum tree.
