Been a new gardener, I would like your advice on what plants will grow in a moist, shady area. This part of the garden never gets any sun, and is always quite heavy soil, as it is wet
I'm not sure if my comments can be seen. I thought I maybe able to get advice and help from the more experienced gardener, but I seem not to be getting replies. This is the 2nd time I have requested advice, but I have no responses.
You could try foxgloves, hostas that's generally what I grow in my shady area
Hi Jacqui, is it always wet or does it dry out in summer? and is it really wet like a bog?
If it's always damp, not a bog, you get more choice. Some of the ferns would go really well, some of those that need more moisture. Primroses, pulmonarias, astilbes and ligularia if it's not too dark.
Dicentra, Ferns, Mahonia, Astilbes all do well in shady areas.
Hi Nutcutlet, thank you for your reply, I'm grateful as a beginner gardener for your advice. The area, that is shady, does dry out a little in the summer, but it still remains moist.
That's good, the worst is a bog in winter and concrete in summer.
have a look at this all for shade plants
I have a damp shady bed that does get some sun after 3:30 between the spring and autumn équinoxes. I grow aquilegias, lily of the valley, primulas, hostas, ligularia, chelone, Japanese anemone, ferns, dicentra spectabilis, fritillaria meleagris, astilbes and hakonechloa.
hi obelixx that sounds wonderful
fritillaries, yes, they'd be good
