In this blog, we will look at planting a garden in a shady space. When planting a planter, the rule of thumb is adding a spiller, a thriller and filler. You can easily adapt the same principles when planning your shaded garden or focus on any one of these elements to suit your needs.
With so much talk about containers, it must be noted that container gardening is another nice option for shaded areas. If you are mindful of what is put in the planter and stick to some of the shaded options listed above, your container will do well. Fuller sun options can be used but require diligence as the containers should be moved to a sunny area for some of the day to give the plants the exposure they need, and then returned to the more shaded position.
Understanding the area that you have to work with and the elements associated with the area will allow you to have a beautiful garden suited to the environment and your tastes.
