Woodland species that can tolerate strong sunlight?

Posted: 01/02/2016 at 16:18

I have areas where chippings have built up over the years. One problem is lack of soil structure and I haven't found it acts as a giant sponge, maybe it would in a wet,shady area but that's not what you've got (or what I've got). Those biennial euphorbias, E.lathyris, germinate in it and grow OK until the gales come then they fall over.

No Steve, no suggestions, woodland plants grow in woodland.

Trial and error I should think, get some cheap and cheerful perennials and see what does best.

Hi Bandita, if it's sylvestris you can cut last years stems off

Maybe a little more control, if you take the seed when ripe and sow it in pots with gravel on top rather than let them drop, with weed seed, onto the seed tray. Pots are better than seed tray, more depth.

I'd transplant them very early from the gravel, as soon as there are true leaves. Gravel is a wonderful medium, I rely on it a lot

For the future I'd take the seed when the seed the pods open and throw them on the garden. This works almost too well.

Hi NewBoy, when we've all finished rambling on here

I think the answer to your question is not really rare, especially with such a mild winter,  but not that common.

I haven't got early blossom due to haircut but several are well into leaf
