Yes, I felt sorry for him, it must feel like the end of an era - but as he said a garden's a living growing thing and every time something comes to an end there's an opportunity for something new - gardeners are philosophers and opportunists and I get the feeling that while Monty felt sad about losing his box, he is looking forward to the challenge of creating a new vision for his garden.

In my experience primroses will cope with shade during the summer, but do like some sunlight in the spring when they flower.
