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

Thanks for the replies the verbena and artemisia looks the best as i only want low growing plants  about 4 to 6 inches high

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.

Think I'd agree with you Nut

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

I hope we'll get a photo when it flowers

Neighbours' fences and hedges?

And there'd always be something we wanted to grow but couldn't

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.
