Mums advice.

Don't fret, my Mum is as bad as me, her speciality is rampant rhubarb, so fear not. I am now searching for hardy perenials that can cope with semi shade whixh may have a bloom or two through the year. Any advice? :lol:

A few perennials that do well in semi-shade, and bloom at different times are Astilbe, Hosta, Bleeding Heart, columbine, solomon's seal, lamium.
There are several different varieties of these, and several different colours to choose from as well. :wink:

Look for a Geranium from the Blooms Boys called Rozanne; it'll go all season for you. A real winner!

Otherwise known as cranesbill. This one does spread a little, so be prepared and give it room! :wink:

Does get to be a meter across or so, but not invasive...
