Does anyone have some offshoots of Gardeners Garters they'd be willing to pack up and post to me please?

I'm happy to cover packaging and postage and/or make a charity donation.

And yes, I do know that it spreads, but it's just what I need for around a tree stump in a wild (ish) patch. image

    This doesn't look much in dry soil Dove, you may have to water it under a tree in Norfolk, (most years, not this one)

    Think it doesn't much like being stuck in one placeimage I have some on a dryish bank, doesn't do anything much. I introduced a bit of it into the edge of the wet, silty streamside holllow in my 'Dell' and it loved it. Took off, romped away, in two or three years the whole area was covered in a sea of green and white that lit up the shade beautifully. But it kept trying to invade the paths and cross to the wild flower bank beyond and I kept pulling it up so it couldn't. The green and white sea slowly ebbed and faded away and now there are just a few bits here and there, sulking like it was before!

    See original post

     Plan is for it to be the other side where the tree is no more ... the 'stump' is faux .... a big chunk/log of the felled one, placed carefully at the edge of the sunny bed for aesthetic purposes (and to allow it to rot down for the bugs and beetles).
