White clover is pretty tolerant of damp soil so it may work, although I'm not sure how it responds to shade.  Do let us know how you get on

At this time of year Chickweed makes a very good addition to a salad - it's also delicious in a sandwich with a slice or two of good salami

Tomorrow's plans have changed .... no trip to the auction - the lots son wanted have been withdrawn - just as well we found out today and not after a long trip down south!  So I can play in the garden tomorrow which is just as well as I haven't got half the jobs done that I'd planned ......... 

Panda, you know we were talking about visiting East Ruston?  I think we should go there in high summer when all their tropical stuff is at its best.  But what do you think about planning a trip to Bressingham Gardens in two or three weeks time .  Anyone else interested?   I know Verdun would like to visit
