Dark corner of garden - suggestions welcome!

Hi Loopy - when you say 'tree' do you mean the trunk of it is dominating the area, with a canopy of foliage above?  Also, what kind of tree is it? 

It's a small area, but there will be something suitable. Is it wet shade or dry? That will also determine what you can grow. The holly will get big if it's happy there, so it won't leave much room unfortunately.

How lucky to have seen her in the flesh Hosta. She was delightful. Hard when the people you've 'grown up with' are going, and worse when it's way too soon. 

Just been out to remove the planks that have been chucked down on top of my primulas along the back fence.....

Wishing I hadn't bothered with this ruddy extension now.

Lawn from seed

I'd never expect grass seed to have germinated if sown in early April. Hopefully it will be ok and once you get consistently warmer temps it will come away, unless the birds have had some extra lunch as Ceres has said. 

If so - you can re sow and it should be fine.

Looking good flumpy  - still time to sow more too - they'll soon catch up  

I only sowed a few weeks ago and they're all germinating now. Just the right timing for our weather up here. The worst of the rough stuff will be gone by the time they're a decent size to put in the ground or pots. They can rot if I sow direct too early.

Morning all /afties Pat - gorgeous pic 

Dove - like your table -  did you have those with chips?

Always progress KBG - you'll have loads to put on your stand soon. By the time it's had a couple of winters, it'll look more rustic  

Beautiful day here after a heavy frost. Not sure how well my grass will look in 6 weeks time...I dare say it'll survive with some tlc...
