Hi there, we have an area of garden that has some large trees/shrubs such as camellia and rhododendrons. Along with a couple of other large evergreen trees these ensure that the majority of the garden is in shade or at the very best filtered light all year round. We have some hydrangeas which grow very well in summer but a lot of the area is unplanted due to the shade. We have placed some large planter pots in the area but these remain unplanted at present. The large trees/shrubs are trimmed and thinned during the year however we really don’t want to remove any of them. I would appreciate some ideas for medium and small planting, ground cover and what to put into the pots.

Hi Denise, The semi permanent shady position will always be a challenge, especially if you would like a lot of colour in these positions. There are plenty of plants that will grow in these conditions, but often they are shades of green!! or the flowering plants do not last as long. Best idea is to pop into one of our stores so staff can show you a few options, at least with the pots you can create pops of colour that can be replanted relatively easily.

Thanks the Palmers Team
