I have a shady corner on my patio, where I plan to add containers with Hostas and Ferns. Can anyone advise me on varieties to plant that go well together.
If it helps I live in the South East (Surrey)
Photos would be great to give inspiration.
Here's my Polystichum polyblepharum in a 12 inch pot. The Polystichums are all lovely evergreen ferns.
There's a hosta appreciation thread on here where real experts have lots of advice on hostas!
Cyrtomium fortuneii, Dryopteris linearis polydactyla, Lysimachia numularia, Hydrangea petiolaris, Dryopteris Wallichania, Dryopteris Erythrosora
Athyrium Lady in Red, Carex oshimensis Everillo, Filpendula Red Umbrellas, Actaea Chocaholic
Along the house wall I have tall pots with trailing fuchsias and a Japanese maple and lower pots of hostas and at the ends which get some sun either early morning or late afternoon I have a big tub with a rose and window box of chives, parsley and basil on a stand so they're handy for the kitchen.
