The native wood spurge, a very tough evergreen Euphorbia for any shady spot including tricky dry soils under trees. Green leaves and lime green/yellow flowers in Summer.

Galium odoratum

  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant size: 30cm (12in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: April to June



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.

Galium will spread quite vigorously. So a plant that will survive in difficult situations.

  • Plant size: 45cm (18in)

Myrrhis odorata

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant size: 60cm (24in)
  • Growing condition: Partial - full shade
  • Flowering season: May to July



Sweet Cicely, fully deciduous. In Spring it produces beautiful soft, hairy, pale green leaves, and then later small heads of cow parsley type flowers. Brushing past it releases the sweet aniseed scent, and it's often used in the preparation of stewed fruit to reduce the amount of sugar needed. A must for the herb or wild garden.

Grows well in dry shade, though best with semi-shade.

  • Flowering season: February to April

The native woodland primrose, a gem of a plant that, if it were not so common here in Somerset and surroundings, would be held in much higher regard. An absolute must for a native, wildlife and woodland garden.
