Seriously verdun I think you should start a thread that introduces new plants or old fashioned perennials people haven't heard of. Simply an explanation A picture your experience and how to propagate. I would be your number one fan. Just looked up aconitum and it's stunning and have never heard of it! Shame it's 1.2m. You must have a large garden!!

your just egging me on aren't you, I really really like the 3 white hellebores called white frills or something. Again 3 for £20 so one for each site I'm my head!!!! I will just tell my partner that Verdun said I had to!!!

I was possibly thinking one for the back and 2 shaped in pots or one for the back and one for each bed at the front. It depends if I can source cheaper or better variety!!

Will do. Just wanted to play off all of your knowledge. is that offer good or are there better value/ better varieties! I want every plant but it sounds like it is good if I can trim to a shape keep compact is evergreen and creates a smell!! ????

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!

Did you source on line. Was thinking of verbascum or these foxgloves now torn! I have 2 foxgloves only and like the height element to them.
