I love geraniums but not sure they will survive? Any suggestions for ones I can buy at my local garden centre which will survive? This is at the side of the house so lots of early morning sun but as I said in title, sun has moved round and no sun from about 11am. Thanks
I would maybe add a bit of grit to the compost mix and then look for plants that like dry shade. You would get away with several varieties of geranium (look up phaeum album, macrorhizzum 'Bevans'), lamium, liriope muscari, Alchemilla mollis, aquilegias (bit late for those this year perhaps), wood spurge, tiarella. Bear in mind that pots are a really tough environment and get dry quickly, so even though these plants are drought-tolerant, they'll still need attention and water!
