Soft grey-green leaves, frothy lime green flowers, lady's mantle is a pretty little plant for borders; in hanging baskets and pots; to soften the edges of paving; or tumble over a wall edge. Will grow in shade, and sun if there's moisture. It looks gentle but comes from the harsh Caucasus region so try this if you get raging hot summers and freezing winters and see how it goes.

Alchemilla mollis - lady's mantle

DESCRIPTION: Soft-leaved herbaceous plant (mollis means soft) with almost-round grey-green leaves, and tiny clusters of lime green flowers in spring-summer.
PLANTING: Seeds need a period of cold to germinate, so place in the fridge for 4-6 weeks first, if you don't get frost. Sow seeds in Autumn into garden beds or pots, on the soil surface, press gently and keep moist.
CARE: Grows in almost any soil except very dry. Water seedlings regularly until established and continue to provide water especially during dry spells. Mulch plants to keep the shallow roots cool in summer. For an extra long flowering season, remove spent blooms and feed with liquid fertiliser.;regularly for prolific flowering and plant health.
