Can I grow Tricyrtis formosana 'Dark Beauty' in a pot and Poppies at the bottom of the garden? Hi, We have a tiny North facing shaded garden and I'm looking for some Autumn colour for our patio. Can I grow Tricyrtis formosana 'Dark Beauty' in a pot? If so how big should the pot be? If not can you recommend something else please? Also I'd love to grow some poppies, we get a fair amount of sunshine in the spring and summer at the very end of the garden will I be able to grow Papaver orientale 'Perry's White' and Papaver orientale 'Effendi' here? Thank you Sally

Hello Sally, These do well in pots, and I would say one about 40 x 40cm filled with John Innes No2 would be suitable. As for the poppies, these flower best in full sun, but they will also grow in a little light shade. I'm afraid though it may be trial and error to see if your spot is sunny enough. I hope this helps.
