What will grow in my woody area
At the end of the garden, we have a little wood area, it has 6 x 80ft scots pines, 2 oak trees, and a sycamore. This time of year is is lovely, with bluebells, primroses, a few daffs.
Other than that, there are nettles, the weed I have just posted in another post, some dwarf bamboo. I would like to see what other woodland flowers I could get to grow there, throughout the year, to make it a wildlife haven.
I did have dreams of foxgloves, campanula and wild garlic, but not sure they will grow in the conditions there. The soil is incredibly dry, and due to the neighbours removing some leylandi hedges it now gets lots of light. We have a short privet hedge which is currently growing back.
Any ideas what I should try ?
We were thinking that this area would be good for a tree house for the girls, but that wont be happening for a few years.
Thanks again for any help. x
