Hardy plants

Go and look at other gardens, public ones, and private ones, village openings, NGS or other charities. See what's there and what you like the look of.

Garden and nursery combined make excellent choosing places. I don't know where you live but Beth Chatto's garden (where the forum trip is hanging in the balance for this weekend) is excellent and West Acre gardens and nursery in Norfolk. You see the plants in the garden and you find them in the nursery.

Forget me nots are several inches high here, self sets from this spring. Hundreds of them, need thinning and transplanting around the garden

Brunnera and forget me nots are similar in flower but very different in leaf and growth

I like it when they sit chewing and spit out the legs

If I sit still they'll sit on me to do that

Not good for insects Dave? I thought it would be with that open centre.

I won't have those if that's the case.

Are yours being visited by insects OL?
