Will primroses grow in full shade?

Posted: 15/03/2014 at 19:18

They seed themselves in totally shaded areas and put up with that. I think deciduous shade is best though

Oh eck

Verdun, that sounds serious. Do they eat cake as well?

It's part of gardening though isn't it? We all get it. We have a 20 foot paved area designed around an old willow. When we built it I remember saying that I hoped we weren't creating something around a tree that was near its end. We were. 

But now I have a whole different planting opportunity. (Leaving out honey fungus susceptible species) 14 years is the blink of an eye in gardening.

I don't know the full details but its former home is no more and it needed re-homing. 

Surveys are carried out before works are done but the presence of animals can be ignored if there's enough money about. (cynic) 

Permission was applied for to extract gravel from the field next to us.. We have great crested newts. Water will be pumped out of the diggings and the site de-watered. This may well de-water our pond but permission was granted.

Tree Scent

All the pines I've cut have had a resinous smell. More chemical than scent

A few plant I.D's please

The plants would get taller and thicker. I only cut back one of my Ribes, the other is a small tree, I like it like that. 

Forsythia gets very straggly but you can leave it like that for years and cut it back sometime if you want to. Pruning isn't what plants get naturally
