Plants for complete shaded areas

Posted: 18/03/2012 at 21:33

Sarcococca hookeriana (Christmas Box) also do well in shaded areas - they're slow growers and are highly scented ground covering plants

what will you do to deal with the drought

Would adding layers of newspaper/shredded paper before mulching help to retain water?

Ferns like to live in shaded areas. If you have a forest of woodland area near to where you live you'll see them growning amongst the tree in abundance.

MULCHING..!!!

Many thanks for your input Stephen. I might just give it a trial and see how it goes. What with the amount of free newspapers that get posted through my letter box on a weekly basis - recycling it back into my garden appears to be a sound option..!!

Morning all..!!

I've just read an article online that says you can lay a layer of newspaper on the earth before covering with a mulch. This prevents weed invasion (to a degree) and also helps to retain moisture to the plant. Has anyone else tried this? Does anyone think this is a worthwhile effort? (especially as there is an imposed water hose ban here in the south).

Many thanks
