It’s sometimes hard to get the feeling of real lushness and abundance in the shade and that can feel like something missing in a garden, and yet that’s all some (particularly urban) gardens have – light or deeper shade. We’ve been experimenting with combinations all along the north-facing wall of our barn over the years and this is the triumphant and best combination — great shapes (particularly from the pair of plectranthus), scent (from the pelargonium), incredible texture (pelargonium and fuschia) and then splashes of colour, rich and bright (from the whole lot). They’re all low maintenance and super-easy to grow.This collection contains:
- 2 x 9cm pots of Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'
- 3 x 9cm pots of Plectranthus ciilatus 'Nico'
- 2 x 9cm pots of Fuchsia triphylla 'Eruption'
- 2 x 9cm pots of Pelargonium tomentosum (Scented)
Water and deadhead as often as you can and start a weekly feed after about a month. The plants will need protection from early frosts, so keep somewhere frost-free in the spring.
