Hi Jean, that looks like a real tricky spot to plant up. Will it get more light as the year progresses?

I don't grow many shrubs so not able help with this. My first thought was woodland plants but I get the feeling that your looking for a shrub that can fill this space for you.

Seeds are up

Fantastic results from the sowings last week, rudebekias up I grew them last year from seed for the first time and they are truly lovely plants. Took a while to get going due to very poor weather but they did put on a show. Especially happy that there's 8 Cappachino types poking through. Seen some great pictures on here of bees loving these flowers.

Good germination off the Cosmos, dwarf and taller varieties, ox eyed daisies, the angel wings, statice and cleomes. Not the grown the last 2 before, they were 20p each. Be good to see how they turn out

Whats your plans for the garden this year?

Sounds good I have the dark knight and a pale pink one too.  Looking forward to seeing them grow into useful screens for me and food for the butterflies.

Some great pictures here. As well as continuing with flowers grown from seed, will be focusing more on biennials and perennials, I have a tiny plot to grow a few veggies in. This will be a first for me.

Hi bunny, I was given some rooted cuttings end of last summer. Kept them in pots for a while outside but put them in the ground in the Autumn. They have survived the snow and look like they are starting to grow. They are tough.

Do you know where they are going to go?
