Anyone got any suggestions for plants that'll creep through the gaps between paving in slightly shady spots? Soil is average loam and limy. I've done your bugles, sedums, violets, tiny ivies and london pride, and whatever I use needs to be pretty tough. I'm not fussed about flowering given the shade factor - just survival of the foliage (so many things end up slug-bait)! Any creeping toughies in your garden that you just can't get rid of? The pavers form rough access paths within deep borders and terraces, so gaps average about 2 inches wide. Doesn't matter if it spills over, just so long as the plant doesn't mind it. I'm really looking for some things that'll grow pretty flat - no more than 4 or 5 inches tall ideally. Any thought folks...?
