Ligularia, found at a farmer's market yesterday. I needed something else to add to my shade garden and this lovely plants sounds as though it will do very nicely. In fact there were two small plants in this pot.
As you dig down in the shade garden, the soil is rather sandy and drains too fast, so, as this plant likes it a little more on the damp side, I placed a small saucer from under a flower pot at the bottom of the hole. I also amended the soil going back into the hole around the Ligularia, with compost, slow release fertilizer and all natural super absorbent granules which hold water.
After all the work placing the Ligularia in it's new home, I was hungry for some breakfast. I knew there were ripe strawberries in the vegetable garden so picked and ate all which were ripe.
