This handbook will tell you everything you need to know to make the most of shady garden spaces. Whether your whole garden, courtyard, or balcony is cast in shade, or you simply have a window box on a shadowy sill, Shade will inspire you to transform the space with lush and interesting planting that looks good (and is beloved by wildlife) all year round.
Rather than a gardener's "problem", an area of shade can open up a whole new world of plants to explore, from delicate flowers and interesting foliage to handsome trees and vibrant bulbs.
Shade includes top tips on tackling all sorts of shady areas, a directory of plants to dip into, and pro advice on achieving year-round colour and structure. It's time to bring those dark corners to life!
