|Conifer canopy lift (or murder) underway|
|Conifers starting to show their trunks. New fencing put in plank by plank!|
|Optimistic planting underway underneath the conifers|
The toughies being tested are:
Geranium Rozanne - mostly because it's lovely and I had so many spares it seemed worth a try!
Foxgloves - mostly seedlings of Excelsior mixed from packet seeds and saved seeds.
Vinca Minor - white flowered
3 types of Heuchera
Euphorbia: Robbiae, Martinii, and Purpurea. The Robbiae should do just fine, I've got that in similar conditions elsewhere (the former owners of our plot really really liked conifers), and the purpurea should cope, but be a bit less colourful, Martinii is a punt.
Festuca Glauca, which is supposed to cope with any kind of condition. First time with this, so we'll see.
A nice yellow leaved grass grown from seed who's name I've forgotten, Bowles something.
