What to plant under a tree?

Posted: 30/10/2014 at 09:53

Of the geraniums obelixx mentions I have found macrorrihizum to be very reliable, dalmaticum a bit inclined to fade away. There's also the hybrid between the 2, halfway in size, G x cantabrigiensis, comes in at least 2 colours. But I still rate macrorrhizum as number one.

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

There's no light or air for weed seedlings under P russelliana

Came across this ground covering shrub but need help identifying it. x2 photos

Alkaline or acid soil Paul?

Was it spreading by throwing up new stems or just spreading out?

Any evidence of seeds/berries

Yes WO, I haven't tried Aldi mix but lots of mixed seed contains stuff the birds can't or don't eat. I don't buy mixes any more.

This has been discussed fairly recently, I'm not sure I've found the right links though.

My 3 flowers are too small a sample for me to claim any expertise

Is it Daintiness? That's good. It's not a plant I know anything about

Plant them. they'll die if you don't. I'd put them in a pot of gritty compost in a cold GH.

Your fears of rot will be proved right in a cold wet winter outside.

I planted 8 in September, in a pot, I have 3 flowers, my first ever from several tries.
