Geranium

Hardy Geraniums are one of the largest groups of flowering garden plants. There are Geraniums suitable for just about any position in the garden, from dark, dry shade through to hot, dry scree. We offer a wide range of hardy Geraniums suitable for the shady border or woodland garden. Geraniums offer much in that they flower in Summer whilst most plants for shade are Spring flowering. Some Geraniums are native and all those listed thrive in UK garden conditions and are very adaptable.
Pest and diseases on hardy geraniums are usually not a problem, some will get late Summer mildew and they can be effected by vine weevil larvae if you have a real problem. They are usually vigorous enough to grow through any problems. Cutting back will lead to a second flush of flowers.

Meconopsis cambrica

Welsh poppies, should possibly be a true poppy or indeed the only true meconopsis. They will seed around and naturalise in shaded beds and always look refreshingly lovely. Maybe not for the tidiest of gardeners but suited to a more, how shall I say, informal and naturalistic approach! Mainly orange but you may get a yellow or red (Frances Perry).
