Lost a huge number of newts to the heron last year.

I've got seed germinated, seed waiting to germinate, seed waiting to be sown later and seed not yet delivered. No hope is there

That sounds a good plan Buttercup. My waiting list is long and will become very long later in the season after this year's germinations

Good idea Tetley

I agree Pat and fidget

I'll have a pond with more constant water levels please. Mine drop so much in summer I can't grow many waterside plants.

Davidia from seed Tetley?

I probably haven't got time for that

Clematis might do OK if I find a smallish one. I wondered about Eccremocarpus, I think it would cope better with the soil. Clems always look a bit depressed here

Lou if you get the right euonymus they have little clingy roots like ivy. E. fortunei var radicans, though that might be out of date as a name, the radicans is about rooting stems. Emerald and Gold etc are cultivars

You need a fantasy meadow Marygold. One that grows up tall and straight and never falls over in the wind and rain One with soil that bee orchids etc will seed into and moist enough for fritillaries.

The variegated euonymus are really reliable, I like those.

I don't like the growth style of vinca so much, sort of flat and straggly.

I'd like some white Cyclamen coum for a start.

I have chimonanthus Tetley, I grew it from seed, at least 20 years to get flowers, first ones last year. Lovely but not much goiung for it out of flower. I'm trying to think of something not too overwhelming to grow through it

I think I've fallen in love

Might be Dove

I bought a variety of viridis last year, it's out there and flowering but I don't know if it's really hardy enough to survive a proper winter. But maybe we won't get one. Nothing lower than -2 forecast at the moment
