Doronicums for early season succession planting

Posted: 26/11/2014 at 16:05

It's all down to what you like to see in you garden. 

For me the central area has too many different yellows. I like the lupins with the (maybe) Achillea grandiflora.

I had a too many yellows situation a couple of years ago. I had to cull a few stylophorums and corydalis

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.

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.
