It is good to hear other people who are in the same situation. Can you suggest any plants that do particularly well in your garden topbird? Is it possible to get some photos? It is always good to get inspiration
how do they compare with plants grown in direct sun?
Hopefully Jo!! the wall was actually part of a grain pit, which was what it said on the tin, a pit to store grains for the animals. We just extended it to reach other end near the garden shed
id like to recreate something like the first photo
but struggling to decide which plants would cope in my situation
(Looking north, can see that the sun doesnt even touch the beds during winter)
So would growing typical "cottagey" plants like pestemon, catmint, scabiosa etc be out of the question even though it would recieve sun in summer? Or will i be limited to shady plants
