I have a 6ft by 6ft area at the bottom of my garden which is always wet. What is the best plants or shrubs to plant in this kind of soil?
How big is the whole garden? ... if it's large then there are some big plants that would be happy there, but if it's a smaller garden we'd need to suggest something more to scale.
Thank you for the help. I will look into a pulmomaria. The wet patch is 6ft by 6ft.
Youll be able to fit several pulmoniaria into that space. Have a look at astilbe too
It depends on how damp and if you have a bit of sun there. I think Iris Ensata would be ideal. More delicate looking Thalictrums can also do well. Plant them in drifts, this will create a nice soft vertical statement.
Shrubs like Hydrangea Paniculata and Abelia Grandiflora can also work if given a bit of sun. Both will add colour during the summer months and Abelia can be pruned down very easily.
