West Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Can anyone recommend plants for a very shady boarder? The bottom of my garden has a high wall and trees behind it, on one side is the garage wall and on the other side is another tree. This blocks practically all the sun from the area. I have tried a number of plants, floweres and shrubs that the garden centre recommend for partially shady areas but they all just seem to die off until I move them to somewhere else. I even have problems with the grass in that area and it is always really patchy. Further up the garden everything grows fine as it gets the full summer sun from morning to early evening.
The bottom of the garden is also very wet during the winter.
Can anyone make any suggestions for any flowers or shurbs that would grow well in these conditions? Ideally I'd like something that grows quite high and bushy.
