Gloucestershire, United Kingdom
I have a difficult problem. I have a new garden, unfortunately one side of it has very large Leylandii forming a boundary (my husband refused to have them cut down as he preferred the natural element of them as opposed to fencing). However they are causing a lot of dry shade, (the beds aren't very deep). I want to cut branches from about 4ft to the ground, having started I am dismayed to find wire netting and embedded corrogated iron panels are now visible. Can any please recommend a few large shrubs that would grow in dry shade. I already have a rhododendron and Heuchera Liquorice growing there. Any suggestion would be gratefully received, 'cos I know you are a clever lot.
