Growing grass and shrubs in the shade

Posted: 12/01/2014 at 09:07

Hiya Michael.

There are one or two threads about growing in shade.......still current.  

There are plenty of plants that will grow in shade.  I guess it is dry shade..?

Grass will struggle there I think. I put some grass seed down for a friend in her woodland area.  It has done very well.  I used a dwarf hard wearing rye grass mixture......available everywhere.  Her site is partial shade though.

If you can't access those threads re growing in shade we can suggest them again here

Chard....

Hello forkers 

Bit different today...........not cold but windy and grey out there and rain to come.  Better get out there soon with my dog  whilst it's dry.

I would move it now. ( if ground is not waterlogged)

Perhaps obvious, but prepare the recipient site before digging up your tree.

Now is a food time but, as Dove says, size and age need to be considered.

Hiya Stacey.  Never used eBay.  Lots do.  Just a bit suspicious of it.

What a beautiful day,it's been here today. Sunny, warm, sea glistening, blue sky, people walking on the beach....lovely 

Nice to see ??ou back Hollie.   To see you back nice .......just made that up.  

Had a good day haggling a discount on a laptop for someone today. Always a game.  Salesman can't drop their prices because their "margins are so tight". And that they are virtually giving their products away!  Anyway got £50 off but will go back mid week to finish the job ....I.e. a bigger discount 

Will be a cold night.....clear skies, no wind etc

Soft Caress has been on my radar for some time.  However, it seems vulnerable to pest amd disease whenever I have checked it out. Anyone successfully growing this variety?
