I grow several different types, all in varying degrees of shade, including a lovely white one [ forgotten name ] in almost complete shade.

Worth remembering that most die down in summer, so try and remember where you have planted them.

Help deciding colour of new fence

It might also be worth considering that, a darker colour will tend to recede in to the background and a lighter colour will tend to be more prominent.

Can You Identify this Bird?

I seem to be over thinking my planting at the moment, 2 hours and nothing planted. Trying to think what colour and texture neighbours will be.

More tiring than actual gardening.

How about, Acteae simplex Brunette with Hosta Canadian blue and Aconitum Arendissi?

Morning all.

Lovely day again. SM done, so I can feel an easy morning reading the papers outside, followed by a little gentle pottering.

Have a good day.

Best moisture loving fern?

Nearly all ferns like to be moist and most of them like some shade. One of my favourites is Osmunda regalis.
