What to plant in a shaded woodland area please?
We have a long woodland area at the end of the garden, walled both sides, which we've never really been sure what to do with (picture shown):I've spent the long Easter weekend hoeing up the weeds and we're left with beautifully crumbly earth - earth that has never had anything planted in it. It does have wild garlic and bluebells and a few shrubs at the entrance to it, but the rest is bare and the weeds in this part are a constant problem. Someone suggested weed membrane, but would that kill off the weeds permanently? Any advice on the types of plants that might survive would be much appreciated.
