drooping hypericum

Possibly calycinum ........ground hugging after an initial upward growth. Erica, does your variety look like it wants to spread rather than form a Woody shrub?

Lavender cuttings

Nothing to lose I guess but sometimes it's sensible to just start again.  Soon in garden centres small lavendars in 9cm pots will be available.  You will have vigour from them that may not be in your cuttings from old bushes.

HELLO FORKERS!

Summer flowering shrubs for shade

Posted: 01/01/2015 at 12:14

Agree with many yellow foliage shrubs for shade 

hydrangeas, Daphne's, sarcoccoca. Mahonia, ......copying Busy"s list I have just noticed except avoid hypericum calycinum.  Hidcote is better as calycinum is rampant.

however, lots and lots of perennials for shade ....acteas, heucheras, astilbes, brunneras, tiarellas, astrantias, etc. etc.

diana, how much shade though?  Dappled shade or shade for part of the day opens up most shrubs.

Feeling almost balmy.

thought about the flower count but there are so many out there......even the odd daffodil braving the new year.  

Hope everybody has a great year
