Would it grow in a boarder that is near. Conifer hedge shade, or would it pull???? My border is about 2 ft higher than the neighbours conifer roots and has been enriched and is quite moist for being near conifers, just we get the shade from all one side!!

i have seen this offers page and I'm smitten with the hellebores. But has anyone got experience of the plant Sarcococca confusa? Will it go in borders or pots only??

Verdun can't you set up a mini business sending baby versions of these plants to Us! Lots you have told me about I can't seem to find locally without ordering multiples or large plants for 7/8 pounds! I visit GC's to avoid p&packing but they don't have variety! Seems gardening is going internet based and order an item at a time when you hear of something!

My Veronica and I want to call it gentalis is a real low carpet type with white talk flower spikes, not the prettiest or best at looking maintained!! I do keep splitting it and giving bits away. But people dont seem to reciprocate!!

Crickey I can't take 5' unfortunately. We are built up higher than neighbouring gardens so that would get thrashed by the wind. I remember you telling me about that before and my heart sank as it's pretty but just too big for me!

Question for all of you guru. Illumination the long flowerer that doesn't produce seed. How do you multiply???? If I decided to buy how, seed, plugs?? I'm confused. Do they revert to normal foxglove in second year as someone at work said they will. What are people's opinions??
