Damp Shady Area
Whilst I can't be doing much in the main garden at the moment I have been looking at this poor neglected spot & wondering what I could do to at least make it look a little better. A friend who visited it recently called it 'the business end' of the house. The shed holds the oil tank and OH uses the bits of wood when tinkering & the pallet thingy is his 'workbench.
It isn't seen from the front or the back garden although a patio door from the TV room looks out on it (luckily we don't use that room in the daytime so don't see it that often.
It is in the shade all day, the conifers (not ours) are quite tall and cast a shadow in the morning as does the side of the house later on in the day. It is also very damp, the rain takes days to dry out if we have any.
I was thinking of putting pots either on top of the wall with hanging plants covering the wall or on the ground with plants growing up to screen the wall that way.
Any idea what plants will survive/thrive, ideally evergreen or at least with some winter interest?
As always, grateful for any help/suggestions.
