PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth , 0.25in/6mm
A delightful autumn-flowering woodland plant, with leaves shaped a little like ivy, though more tapered, strongly patterned with silver-green markings. The flowers are pink and sometimes delicately scented, usually appearing before the foliage. Looks wonderful naturalised under trees.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Seed is best sown fresh. To aid germination, soak in tepid water for 24 hours, then sow 0.25in/6mm deep in a pot of good quality, gritty but moist compost (not over-firmly) and cover to exclude light. Place in a cold frame or cool greenhouse at 55-60F/13-15C. Germination can take anything from 1-6 months, so check from time to time and pot on seedlings as they appear. Plant out when large enough, not too deeply, which can prevent flowering, taking care to disturb the roots as little as possible.
