Geranium nodosum

£4.95 (2 or fewer items) £4.55 (3 or more items)

Bluish pearly pink flowers. A nice form of this woodland toughy from the Old Rectory, Burghfield. Will seed around to a certain extent and thrive in pretty much the driest position. An incredibly useful Geranium, a great candidate for underplanting in shaded and wooded spots.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

£4.30 (2 or fewer items) £3.50 (3 or more items)

{About}
We were asked for sweet woodruff so often that we now grow it. Mythical thug for a shady spot where it can spread and display its white flowers in Spring. Will tolerate dry soils. It was used most effectively as ground cover in a small, shady courtyard show garden at Chelsea 2012, and can be seen at Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.
{Cultivation}
Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.

Alchemilla mollis AGM

Alchemilla mollis AGM

£3.95 (2 or fewer items) £3.50 (3 or more items)

Common as muck but brilliant for a tough spot. Plumes of lime green/yellow flowers in Summer. Wonderful for flower arranging and the leaves look magical with water droplets sitting on them. Very dry shade tolerant and resistant to deer and rabbits, plus the occasional football or foot.

Often used at the front of borders and complementing other flowering perennials (it looks stunning when planted with Geranium 'Rozanne'), Alchemilla can also be used most effectively to create an area of differing foliage colours and textures - it combines beautifully with small to medium sized ferns.

It will mildly seed around but it is just too useful to ignore!
