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
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 !!
