Help with ground cover
Hello there, I love my little Jurassic Path but am having an absolute mare with the blackbirds chucking the bark chipping around and cats using it a as a toilet …the latter being a real issue as my 1yr old twins want to investigate it.
It’s south facing but due to it being a narrow corridor it doesn’t get blasted by the sun all day (just very intense sun for part of the day). I mulch the ferns and give it a good soak once a week or so as it can get a bit dry. I’d love something lush green that complements the ferns and adds to the woodland vibe. I’ve looked on rhs plant finder but it’s coming up with periwinkle (which hasn’t grown so well down there), mind-your-own-business (which I don’t think my neighbour on the other side of the fence would appreciate coming through), and bushwort …which I think is maybe the best option …although I don’t know much about it. What else is out there that could do the trick? Scaring off the cats is not an option as we have one of the darling little culprits.
