    Cool, moist, shady conditions Glenys.

    Think of Scotland re the climate they prefer....image

  • What about the texture/consistancey type of soil it likes

    Not boggy Glenys, just reliably moist, with reasonable drainage. Good, rich, friable soil will suit most types.

    Good luck with it Glenys. Many people are envious of those who can grow them!  image
