Plants that like shade

For inspiration try plantsforshade.co.uk and the search and description on crocus.co.uk is good too so should be able to look up stuff appropriate for your aspect, soil, preferences.

Achillea

I've fallen for achillea since getting Terracotta.  The colour emerges strong and then they all fade at different rates creating a gorgeous mix.  Yes, a bit leggy now, but was certainly worth it.  Do I cut it back to the ground in the autumn or the spring?  It's my first time growing herbaceous perennials.

Here's my astrantia major Roma.  Somewhat lacking in pinkness.  Wondering if I've been given something else. The one on the right is bit pink but not exactly convincing.

Yeys!  Excited too!  Weather looks a bit damp but sure we'll still have fun.

(Can't look any sillier than I did this morning.  Forgot my coat so sat in car park watching torrential rain.  Eventually gave up and walked to office wearing hubbies sun hat that I found in the back, with my work shirt and skirt attire, getting drenched.)

Anyone else fancy joining us?

Yeah, it appears I don't remember the colour either! brain's gone on hols!  I'll see how they develop, but might be up for a swap!

So, Dove, how about I aim for 930 pick up and we should get to BC soon after 11, if good traffic.
