Planting suggestion. Could do with some suggestions for perennial plants that provide early spring colour for a narrow shady damp border.



how early? and do you want flowers or foliage? These are some of the plants I grow in shade.
Vinca minor/lamium/carex/pulmonaria/ range of evergreen ferns.

there will be other suggestions too I am sure.
