Shade Loving Plants
Almost everyone has a bit of shade in the garden, this could be shade cast by buildings, trees, fencing or simply the positioning of your garden but don't see this as a problem, there are a wide range of trees, shrubs and plants available that will do very well in this mostly overlooked area.

It may help you to draw a sunlight map to discover the shaded areas of your garden before you do any planting to assist you in your final design. Where this is not possible however due to an already established garden for example it is still possible to get the most out of your shady areas. Take into account the amount of time the plants will be shaded for when choosing which plants to put where. Some areas may only be in light and partial shade whereas others may experience near total shade due to large objects such as trees and walls.

Different shade loving plants will thrive in different shade amount areas. Trial and error may be key as well as watching your garden throughout the year to see exactly how the sun moves over it and when.

Having a shady garden is not such a terrible thing and while many of us see gardens as reaching their full potential once they are filled with colour they are also spectacular when splashed with luscious green. This list of shade loving plants are some of the most popular and will brighten up any dark corner of your garden.
