    Pulmonaria 'Blue Ensign'

    Mottled silvery leaves with stunning deep-blue flowers – a particularly dark, rich form. Please note weather conditions do affect the pigmentation when the bud is being developed, so there may be an amount of pink flowers this season. We would expect that flowers produced later in the season…

    Hepatica nobilis

    The easiest of all Hepatica to establish in your garden. Like an earlier, blue version of a wood anemone, it will thrive in Part Shade and naturalises well.

    Helleborus x ballardiae 'Merlin'

    My-oh-my this hellebore is incredible. It has beautiful dark, slate grey-green leaves and then smoky pink flowers which gradually darken to crimson. With stem ends seared for 10 seconds it makes the BEST winter and spring cut flower too.

    Pulmonaria 'Sissinghurst'

    The best of the pure white pulmonarias, which flowers all spring. It has elegant dappled silver foliage too, which is evergreen in many gardens, so it is the perfect plant for lightening up a dark corner as this thrives in light shade.

    Euphorbia amygdaloides var. robbiae

    Euphorbia amygdaloides is a completely invaluable plant for growing in a shady spot to brighten up a dark corner and for picking – by the bucket – for all your spring vases of flowers. We'd be lost without this in the cutting garden. If I was only allowed to take one group of ornamental…

    Euphorbia x martinii

    A manageable-sized shrubby euphorbia which flowers all spring to mix with tulips in the border and vase. Once cut, sear stem ends in boiling water to seal poisonous sap and make them last up to two weeks in a vase. Please note: This plant is harmful if eaten, and is a skin and eye irritant, so…

    Helleborus orientalis 'Pretty Ellen Spotted'

    I love Helleborus orientalis 'Pretty Ellen Spotted', which look as if their flowers have been freckled by a paint brush in the richest crimson. Hellebores are brilliant for shade and if you cut these on a shortish stem and sear the stem end in boiling water, they make a glamorous cut flower.

    Viola labradorica

    One of the best-ever ground-cover plants which gradually spreads in even the darkest corners, to cover all your soil and get there before the weeds. This variety is semi-evergreen (almost evergreen in mild areas) and was one of Vita Sackville-West’s favourite plants for weed suppression at…
