Berkshire, United Kingdom
Hi there - I'm new to the forum (and pretty new to gardening!). I am hoping for some advice about planting.
I have a shady strip (under hawthorn trees that are currently covered in ivy), that backs onto a field. There are loads of nettles and brambles along the edge of the field (and currently also in the garden - we moved in a year ago and are tackling it bit by bit).
Can anyone suggest anything that I could grow instead of nettles/brambles/ivy? I've cleared most of the nettles & brambles, and will get rid of a lot of the ivy after the nesting season has finished, but because of the weeds across the fence, I think I'll always be battling to keep it weed-free.
So I think I'm looking for some evergreen things, and I'd like to go for mainly wildlife-friendly plants.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
