Hi I have an odd shaped bed, which currently has some fruit, but will have to be turned in to a permenent fruit bed as im running out of space! Right out of the things below what will take the shadier end of the bed? Not full shade. Rhubarb Gooseberries Raspberries Tayberry Blueberries Thanks
Haven't grown all of them in semi shade but I know that rasps, tayberries and gooseberries will be fine there. Also blackcurrants and blackberries.
If you live in Derbyshire, as I do.
Sounds good Bekkie. I've got raspberries on NE facing slope, at the bottom of a 15ft retaining wall - so pretty shady. 15lb of raspberry jam this year - nuf said?
Don't we all...
For some years I tried to grow rhubarb; only had success when I put it in dappled shade
I have gooseberries and rhubarb in a shady part of my allotment - shaded by an apple tree growing growing in 'no mans land'.
