Yes. Have to say a bit weedy. Looks better climbing in amongst something else. You thinking up the trellis or up a tree?

How about Lamium white nancy and tiarella for the bank

 Was just looking for a pic of white nancy to post but this one with the tiarella caught my eye and it too thrives in dry shade. There are also Astrantia and Epimediums both will grow in those conditions and don't forget Hostas too!

Tried to dig some out once and they had disappeared under the foundations of the house!!!! But they are  beautiful even if they are thugs. 

Growing organically from seed & container gardening

Carrots do really well in containers because there are no stones/lumps/debris to grow round or get in the way. They will be lush, long and straight. Spinach will last longer as potting compost holds more water so they will be less likely to run to seed. Kale and broccoli will be easier to protect from cabbage white caterpillars if grown in pots so invest in some fleece to cover them to keep butterflies off.

I would put your quick croppers in the ground...raddishes, salad leaves etc. Then you can keep planting as you harvest. 

Beetroot either or.

If they have been in a while Daisy the roots go well deep. Takes some digging to get them out which is why you may end up with them still growing where they are.

Good would be horrible to lose it. Shame about the fruit but with a flower like that who cares!
