Thanks Nut and Verdun.

 

Any ideas about my mecanopcis? Just a bit confused if it should be inside or in the unheated greenhouse. Thanks

Does anyone know an easy way to spot the difference between foxgloves and comfrey?



 This photo is one I took this morning (before it started snowing). One is a foxglove and the other is a comfrey. I know which one of these is which (foxglove was removed from my coldframe for this picture) but in the garden I can't tell the difference. 

Left is Foxglove, right Comfrey.

My money still on Foxglove and green alkanet.

Question - if gardeners didnt have the weather, and pests and weeds  to complain about what would be the next topic of discontent?

Joce I was going to suggest thymes/thrift/dianthus which is why I asked about aspect. They make a good carpet if it's a sunny site so long as drainage is good. Also some of the low growing alpines- loads to choose from- sedum, saxifrages etc., and dwarf bulbs for a bit of extra colour early on.
