    Potatoes by trees did well

    I've used ground that has not been used for years and always get a good crop first year. If the ground has not grown much for a while it might well have a few years of fallen oak leaves rotted...
    I've used ground that has not been used for years and always get a good crop first year. If the ground has not grown much for a while it might well have a few years of fallen oak leaves rotted down in it. I think the very old idea of having a fallow patch was a good one.

    Campanula

    I don't have any. I rely entirely on nature, apart from watering in dry spells.

    While this plant grew and spread nicely across the front of the garden, one clump seemed top get bowed down by heavy rain, and inexplicably flattened at the base under a rock. I've removed the rock, and placed it as a support in front of the stalks, and am wondering if the clump will revive.

    Fern

    Looks like a Heart Leaf Fern.There's more than 20,000 known species of Fern, but being a shop bought one helps narrow it down a bit.

    Winter bedding plants in shade

    For the winter I'd put violas in that very nice long planter. (A few cyclamen would do well in full shade) In the summer I'd put in impatiens for a riot of colour that can handle semi shade.
