Shake Off The Shade

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Knitting -

In the dry shade be­neath trees, plant ground­hug­ging ajuga, al­chemilla, epimedium, berge­nia, helle­bores, lamium, pul­monaria, pachysan­dra and soft shield ferns. Make the em­pha­sis on plants with shiny leaves and white or pale-coloured blooms, to lift the gar­den out of gloom. To get the plants off to a fly­ing start, soil must be in good heart with plenty of or­ganic mat­ter added be­fore plant­ing, and us­ing mulches will en­sure bet­ter mois­ture re­ten­tion.
