Primula kisoana, woodland shade primrose, blooms in spring but foliage looks attractive all season. Grows by underground runners in rich woodland soil , also comes in white form, Alba, though its not as easy for some reason.

Moist soil, rich soil for Forget me Nots and violets. Forget me nots are unattractive when they go to seed, but you can mow them down @ that stage and they just keep coming back. You need to love the wild  cottage garden look to want these, but when they bloom it looks beautiful. Also you can plant other perennials that grow taller as the forget me nots fade away making them less noticeable.

"It's either sand or hard pan from being walked on by cows for 50+ years. There is an old pile of cow poo to til in.  It was pasture for our milk cows & beef."

"2 days before new moon plant above ground growers. From full to smaller plant root crops and transplant. They won't grow up they might rot before they germinate."

"Keryn I wish I made that much money then I could quit worrying about things that need to get paid. I have to have a huge sale with all the junk at the farm and more plants from here. Everything there is dead from no water for the past 2 years."
