Hazel    I'm not really allowed to do much until the Fracture Clinic have done whatever they're going to do on Tuesday ... but I have been out and sat in the shade on the terrace and supervised a bit of watering

Thanks Posy 

Looking after an Aruncus

I've always assumed aruncus need damp soil and my RHS book says 'moist ground' ... but having read Lydia-ann's post I googled and some sites state that it's best in 'well-drained soil'.  


How 'well-drained' can they take? 


  I should have read Berghill's post ... duh!

I find they're happiest in dampish soil in dappled shade.


I think they're absolutely gorgeous.
