Thanks Hogweed have plenty of those except the pachysandra. Will look and see which of the geraniums I have would do best in shade.

Thanks Charlie I've got some erythroniums and snow drops etc... in the garden that I could move in there so I'll have a look for them.  The soil is definitely humus rich!

I have been cutting back a weeping cotoneaster which was taking over a border and am now looking for ideas to under plant around it. As it's evergreen I need ideas for plants that will tolerate shade and dry conditions.  I'm going to put daffodils from my containers in when they finish flowering but what else?  I have dicentra both a pink and a white one and wondered if they would survive there and also have Brunnera Jack Frost which I thought might work there too. But any other ideas please?

I have been sent free seeds of Safflower and Lemon Cucumber - does anyone have any ideas about planting and growing   - I'm thinking maybe next March but can't find any information to know if I'm rght or not. Has anyone tried growing these?

Thank you, I only sowed 3 of the seeds from the packet as I was hedhing my bets so to speak.. so if these ones drop on me I'll wait till May to sow again.  I've put them on my south facing sunniest window and brought them off it when it gets dark so they are still in warmth.

I have been growing 2 of these from seed but they are both very leggy... and 2nd leaves are just beginning to show on the top of a 7 to 9 cm stem.  Should I pinch them back or wait til there are more leaves?
