We have recently landscaped our garden and now have 3 main planting areas that I have started to fill. One is a large 2.5metre square and the other 2 are long and fairly thin, one of these is in constant shade. Our soil is heavy clay, poor draining and basically a pain! I like mediterranean style planting/colours and natural prairie style planting, unfortunately neither of which really go with my soil type.. but with a lot of sand, compost and effort hopefully I'll get a garden that I love!
I'd like to find some interesting shade loving plants to go with my ferns & hostas. And any types of ornamental grasses that would grow happily in heavier soil.
