    Hey,

    Love the blog, you def have a new follower.

    I was wondering if you knew what kind of plants are good for heavily shaded gardens? we have a tiny tiny city garden, but it is surrounded by big oak trees which i suspect are sucking the life out of everything, couple that with it not getting an ounce of sun and me being a complete novice, i’ve no idea what to plant in there, everything from last year died.

    thanks for your help!!

      Hi Door!
      Thanks for the follow
      I would suggest that if you have a very shady garden that you consider concentrating on spring bulbs which will flower before the leaves are on the trees and are happy in the shade.
      However, depending on the type of shade you have it might be worth you looking at Graham Rice’s Planting the Dry Shade Garden which I understand is very good. Shade doesnt have to be a problem you just have to work out what will and what wont grow in it.
      There are facilities on the RHS plant finder website to help you select your growing conditions and show you what plants will grow.
      Hope that helps

      Helen
