Thanks for the suggestions. Seeing as the pots are positioned up against the house they may not catch all the rain, but Ive done some searching on the Crocus website and ive found Dryopteris wallichiana fern which grows to 1m tall and tollerates dry shade. Sounds ideal?
Perhaps underplanted with a smaller fern like Athyrium niponicum var. pictum (Japanese painted fern)
But I guess ive missed my opportunity for this sumer, perhaps I ought to think about planting it up for a winter display as well?
