I have just bought a nice gunnera, intending to put it by the pond. It says they are fully hardy and like it damp.
Having researched a bit more, they seem a bit more fussy than i thought, inluding needing winter protection. Hmm.
The pond is open and sunny, i dont have any shade. the water level fluctuates a lot though, about 2 feet, so will it be better permanently in the wet, permanently dry, or sometimes in water and sometimes out?
And add straw over the crown over winter? Can be v cold here, so not sure how much chance it has.
