I moved my galanthus in the green once they finished blooming, I don't see why you could not do the same with eranthis or if you have the area that they are planted in well marked, you could dig them up in fall and move them then.

It suggests that these can be planted 'in the green'. Can I move already flowering plants?

I love ferns and other shady garden plants, maybe because they suit my garden!
It might be worth trying a scattering of small bulbs to add some winter colour - snowdrops are incredibly shade tolerant, also Winter Aconites (Eranthis hyemalis). Hellebores are good companions to ferns if you want a bit more variety (H corsicus or foetidus especially), and are tolerant of a lot of shade, likewise the spotty leaved lungworts (Pulmonaria). Native primroses and bluebells should also do well. I could go on!! You could leave the tree leaves to rot down and make a natural weed suppressant. The path could be bark for a natural look.

Before I get into reccomendation of plants for dry shade..you can significantly improve the situation by adding lots of organic material,well rotten farmyard manure is best or good home made compost...dig in as much as you can a layer of 150mm or more may seem impossible but will retain great moisture and help establishment
the following is not an exstensive list but it will point you in the right direction.
pachysandra terminalis
most hedra species
Vinca minor
Cyclamen coum
anemone blanda

Aconites are the brilliant midwinter counterpoint to snowdrops'modern charm. They were identified with the classical aconite, which was a poisonous herb dedicated to Hecate, a moon goddes in Greek mythology. There is a story that Cerberus, the fearsome watchdog of hell, spat out venomous saliva from which the aconite sprouted. An unpleasent story, though a well-founded one, as aconite is one of the most poisonous plants in cultivation.
