Just got back from the garden centre. I really really wanted to buy Heuchera Marmalade and Euphorbia Silver Swan but they were £8 each, so I've opted for three decent sized Buxus sempervirens for £10 and a Stachys byzantina.
The Box will get potted on and pampered into topiary over the next three years, the latter will get propagated like mad for a big spread in the full sun border next year. I had a Stachys once before which ended up as slug dinner and there was me thinking that slugs didn't eat silver foliage, so I'm well prepared this time round.
Slightly depressed about the lack of sun and the lack of sun forcast to come, but I still enjoy the growing season whatever the weather.
