In heavy shade, use light or coloured foliage to brighten up the area.
Choose variegated plants such as hosta, Moses-in-a-basket, Solomon’s seal or shell ginger.
Under leafy trees, try growing cordyline, bromeliad, begonia, mondo grass or liriope.
TO PLANT use a trowel to dig out pockets of soil between large tree roots, adding a few handfuls of compost to the existing soil.
Position the plants then cover the area with a 70mm layer of mulch.
TIP Shady areas attract snails and slugs so remove rocks and statues where they like to hide.
