  • Pot size: 9cm
  • Plant ultimate height: 15cm (6in)

Its rather delightful common name is 'Town Hall Clock' - rarely seen for sale, but proving very popular, a small green flowered rhizomatous perennial, doesn't sound like much but a most charming native woodlander. Flowers are arranged as if on the four faces of a cube with a further flower facing upwards. Often found in old woods and hedge bottoms.

Galium odoratum

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


A very useful groundcover for tough, dry shady conditions.

A 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 in the walled garden at NT Mottisfont forming a wonderful ground cover under a fig tree.


Galium will spread quite vigorously, but it is a plant that will survive the toughest of dry shady conditions.

Myrrhis odorata

  • Pot size: 1 Litre
  • Plant ultimate height: 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.

The much loved, native woodland primrose, a gem of a plant that, if it weren't so common here in Somerset and the surrounding areas, would be held in much higher regard. Very easy and an important source of early nectar.
