Made in the Shade

Some gardens have problem areas that may be low light, damp or difficult to mow

As a rule, shade adds depth and quality to the range of plants you can grow, and it is astonishing the range of plants that thrive in shady conditions. Most green tones look better in shade, and flowers that tolerate shade draw the eye in to linger.

When choosing the best plants for colour in a shade garden, keep in mind that bright colours will brighten up a shady area. Where you cannot control your shade, you can nearly always plant to make the most of it.
