Thank you for all your responses Bekkie I know just where to get some nettles, so I can pot some up next year. I adore foxgloves and bluebells, my mum has bluebells in her garden, so that's handy. I've had a look at crocuses in one of my gardening magazines, which was very informative. Fairygirl I love your idea of a Budleia, I didn't know I could get a Budleia for a pot, so this is brilliant. I've got a Heuchera and it does okay. Thank you punkdoc I'll check out the dwarf cultivars. Man of Kent, I don't know why I didn't think of Hellebores, I love these plants. I've got Alchemilla mollis, the thing I love about this plant is how the rain forms perfect little droplets on the leaves, it's such a pretty sight to see.
I forgot to say that my courtyard is all concrete, so everything has to go into pots.
Guess who has just been given the green light for an allotment? I just found out today and to say I'm excited would be a massive understatement. To be able to garden straight into the ground instead of pots will be such a pleasure.
Thanks again for all your lovely advice.
