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

I did wonder about this fairy; would perrenials emerge later seeing as the ground would take longer to warm due to the sun only hitting the border say mid spring instead of all year round?

Does your garden get sun all year round hogweed?

can someone with experience of north facing gardens suggest cottage style plants that do well in a north facing garden? My particular border recieves a good 5-6 hours of sun in the height of summer, but gets no sun at all from mid October till the sun gets high enough in spring to shine over the house.

 

all advice welcome !!

Can anyone reccomend from your own experience a supplier of bare root soft fruit bushes? Preferably an independent supplier (shop small and all that) but arent to pricey.

Exactly. I know we dont know the amount of hours of sun each part of the garden gets, only monty does, but surely it cant be classed as full sun. Especially in those borders with the 7ft + high hedges
