Having trouble deciding what to plant in difficult area of my garden :(
I'm looking for something to plant along the length of my shed to hide the gap underneath it. Ideally something wildlife friendly but not too fussed in this particular area. It's shaded for most of the day, it gets some morning light at the end of the shed but no direct sunlight for the rest of the day (light shade?) and we have heavy clay soil which doesnt help as the rain water falling off the shed lands directly in the area i want to plant, so its quite moist although i wouldn't say it gets waterlogged as it all drains away quite quickly.
I was thinking of the dwarf sweet box (sarcococca humilis) to make a kind of hedge along the shed although the shade wouldnt be a problem im not sure if the soil and dampness would upset it? Or box. I cant quite decide. If anyone has any ideas id be very grateful :)
Also, forgot to say :s
I'm planning on making a little pathway to the compost bin at the end of the shed so cant have anything that will be spreading out in all directions too much! Space is at a premium! :o
