Can't garden so reading the books

On the dust jacket of my copy of Beth Chatto's Woodland Gardenis a picture of the paeony 'Late Windflower. I love the look of this one. Has anyone grown it? I have no white ones. I have germinated P.rockii this week but suspect it won't be flowering in the near future.

Lovely book this one if you like woodland and shade gardening.

I have a lot of shade area (due to us putting a 6ft fence .between us and neighbour we bought land off hide their rubbish /scrap image) front doesn't matter , all bark , dog potters about, lays down , grumbles through fence at neighbourimage

    Back I have taken some recommendations to go with what's there image

    At moment I am reading:

    The impossible life of Mary Benson. Biography.

    Moll Flanders - Daniel Defoe.

    Brideshead revisited- Evelyn Waugh.

    I like lots of books on the go at one time.

    I get muddled if I have more than one novel on the go.
