Polygonatum - Solomon's Seal

Delightful woodland plants which combine beautifully with ferns and other woodlanders. Tolerant of most shady positions they like humus rich soils typical of deciduous woodland. If you like Polygonatum, take a look at closely related Disporopsis, another genus of elegant woodlanders with exquisite tubular flowers that enjoy similar woodsy conditons to Polygonatum.

Check for Solomon's Seal sawfly damage in early Summer. Harmful if eaten.

Galium odoratum

Galium odoratum

4.50 (2 or fewer items) 3.95 (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 fragrant 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.

Geranium nodosum

4.95 (2 or fewer items) 4.85 (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.

{Description} A lovely low growing, compact white flowered form. Short evergreen leaved stems produce a succession of refreshing white flowers from mid Spring and into the Summer. Bushy plants.
{Cultivation} Vinca minor, including this form, is very tolerant of a wide range of conditions but thrives in dryish deciduous shade. On the whole very easy.

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

Omphalodes cappadocica 'Cherry Ingram' AGM

5.45 (2 or fewer items) 4.95 (3 or more items)

A blue-chip and striking Spring woodlander, comparatively large blue flowers in masses in Spring and possibly the odd one in Autumn too. Slowing spreading to form a mat of foliage. Evergreen and quite charming. Likes woodsy conditions and combines beautifully with spring bulbs and ferns. I have seen it used as a very stylish underplant in a formal courtyard garden too.
