Hi, I have a small narrow back garden. I have a area I want to plant up along the front of a 6 ft high fence that is 6 meters long by 1 meter wide. I can enjoy looking at it from the house once it’s done! The problem is that this area is south facing and gets very very hot from 1 June to August 31. The rest of the time its completely shaded by the house. In the winter it’s very very cold. I have tried shady plants but they die in the heat when the sun gets onto them and I have tried sun loving plants but they die in the cold winter. The soil gets waterlogged in the colder months and very dry June to September. I have Pyracantha growing up the fence and it has nearly completely covered it now. That’s been a success! The bed in front is the problem. Has any one got any ideas to help with planting this bed up? I would like SMALL evergreen flowering shrubs and perennials if possible. Nothing taller than 1/2 meter as the garden is so small. The soil is NOT acidic.
