Planting for a dry shady corner

April 25, 2015

We have a client in East Grinstead with a problem corner that is very shady and quite dry.

The reality is that there is always a plant that will do well but it’s simply a matter of selecting the right one for the conditions.

Here are some ideas that were specific to clay soils, but many of them will also work on other soils too.
