Thanks Hostafan1, I think I will also try some ferns.
Thank you Nutcutlet and Flowers in the Rain for answering such a basic question. I'll understand the labels at the garden centre a bit more now!
Anyone is an expert compared to me...but watch this space. I have 2 large confiers making the ground very shady. I have put black weed membrane and pea shingle under them is there anything that will grown underneath
Ah, thank you. Do the herbaceous plants come up again next year?
Can someone explain the difference between perenials and herbaceous perenials for a beginner please?
