best woodland plants to grow from seed
I have a large shade/woodland garden and I need a lot of plants to fill it up. I'm wondering (in the interest of saving money AND to give myself something to do over the winter) what are the easiest woodland plants to grow from seed? I don't want to grow anything that doesn't bloom the first year. I already have tons of hosta and ferns. Also, while I'm at it, what is a good shrub or bush to grow along the back of this garden? Something about 4 or 5 feet tall. I'm thinking maybe Oakleaf Hydrangia but I'm afraid it may be too shady an area. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
