Other bulbs and plants
The list below includes most of those listed in the catalog. Many are suitable for the rock garden or troughs, while some belong in shady or sunny borders or in meadows. Meadows are fun to have and other than the work of deciding what to plant and planning how to mow if needed, they can contain a very varied mix of bulbs, perennials and grasses. In my sandy coastal soil, I’ve sown cyclamen seed, planted Prunella, Sisyrinchium, our native Achillea millefolium, English violets and our native Viola adunca, among others because they will grow well without much if any summer water and will tolerate mowing. I simply set the mower deck high enough to leave the plants mostly unscathed, and I also tend to mow in the evenings when the snakes have gone to bed.
