Woodland species that can tolerate strong sunlight?

No Steve, no suggestions, woodland plants grow in woodland.

Trial and error I should think, get some cheap and cheerful perennials and see what does best.

Hi Bandita, if it's sylvestris you can cut last years stems off

Maybe a little more control, if you take the seed when ripe and sow it in pots with gravel on top rather than let them drop, with weed seed, onto the seed tray. Pots are better than seed tray, more depth.

I'd transplant them very early from the gravel, as soon as there are true leaves. Gravel is a wonderful medium, I rely on it a lot

For the future I'd take the seed when the seed the pods open and throw them on the garden. This works almost too well.

Hi NewBoy, when we've all finished rambling on here

I think the answer to your question is not really rare, especially with such a mild winter,  but not that common.

I haven't got early blossom due to haircut but several are well into leaf

Poppies transplant fine as potsful as punkdoc says. 

what they're no so pleased with is having their roots interfered with. 3 in a pot will be fine as one planting, separating into 3  and planting would set them back.

I wonder if the 2'' is what I meant by a a cluster of flowers, as in hawthorn.
