I have just developed a new border area . It's in front of some tall silver birches. The plan is to have some tall colorful flowers at the back and a variety of bushes/ shrubs in the front.
Because of the trees, it will be a shaded area.
What type of plants should I consider?

I would suggest foxgloves (digitalis) as they grow well in my woodland area. In the front you could try hydrangea or go for all year round colour with a selection of Heuchers, which like sun or shade and come in all sorts of amazing colours.
