Doronicums for early season succession planting

Posted: 26/11/2014 at 14:52

D. pardalianches (easy from seed, pic below) can take a later swamp and is quite tall.

Be careful with too many different yellows  they can wipe each other out

 Also Phlomis russelliana which will stand up through the season and still be there to be decorated by frost.

anyone reconise this plant description? please ?

Lily-of-the-valley where do you grow yours?

No, definitely not Susan.

Not enough, Can't get them to thrive.

But, like Philippa, the Solomons seal goes well.

My mother had a huge patch in shade, her soil was gravelly and like concrete in summer. With hindsight (I wasn't a gardener then) they may not have been brilliant but it was a big patch and they flowered

Yes the roots will get biggish. 

Tunnels etc are fun for kids but a playhouse would be a fair weather only play space, dripping in the rain. Also bare in the winter.

Mystery present from Mother-In-Law!

It may need acid soil, have you got that. I haven't checked now but I think that's why I don't grow it.

Or maybe I'm wrong and I could grow it.

Hello WW, missed your post before
