Thanks. Will the skimmiia cope with very hot afternoon sun do you think? I think the Choisia is a good idea.....
what can I plant under and around a huge oak tree? The soil is clay, gets very dry in summer and the area gets boiling Hot sheltered afternoon sun in summer....; this area is proving to be very difficult!
You're right! Thanks Nutcutlet
Believe it or not I have two hybrid musk roses in that bed which by the way also has horrible very old conifers in it (am in conservation area so can't chop anything down without permission which is refused) which do very well! All other roses I have tried struggle.
Thanks for both replies! Will try your suggestions potsandpansies.
Can't find your reply, can you reply here please?
