clumps I reckon and not small ones. You'll lose too many if you try individuals. and they'll look spindly, they will be individually skinny now but they look like a generous clump all together.

Small pansy?

Indeed they will grow tall and skinny in the competition for light. The transplant will have set the moved ones back as well


They may sulk when you move them, poppies for one (I think I can see poppies there) do not like disturbance. 

Wild flower seeds

There are hundreds of wildflowers that grow in shade, but not the type that grow in grass meadows or the bright coloured annual mixes.


Grass generally doesn't do well in full shade though a few species will. Not wild in this country but Millium effusum 'Aureum' will brighten up a dark corner and Anemathele lessoniana does well in shade. Both easy from seed.


Primroses, foxgloves and red campion do well, Greater and Lesser Celandine at different times of year. Nettle leaved Bellflower, later flowering than most shade plants. Snowdrops, they grow wild here, good for very early flowers.

I think at this stage you'll have to prop them up. They won't be self supporting.

What is this??

that's mildew. 


Looks awful doesn't it. Looks a bit like one of the Michaelmmas Daisies but they're not shrubs.


You won't get rid of the white this year and it stays even if you get the chemicals out. If you give it more water next year it may do better, But some plants are very prone to mildew and in my opinion not worth bothering with. I'd dump that and get something with a better constitution,

It's a codonopsis Dove, C. lanceolata.


The deep red Persicaria amplexicaulis always falls over, the lighter pink, never, though they're both the same height. I wonder if I could contain a patch of deep pink within a circle of the lightone  or whether it would look silly
