Shine a Light on Shade

It’s becoming increasingly common for gardens to become shaded by near-by building and trees. It opens the opportunity to find shade-tolerant plants! We can help you to shine a light on shade!

Transform any shaded area of your outdoor space or garden into a vibrant, flourishing array. With our expert advice, we can help your plants thrive in low-light environments and add beauty and tranquillity to your garden oasis. 

Follow our easy steps:

Know Your Shade...

  1. Choose plants that suit your garden.
  2. Partial shade is 2 to 4 hours of sun a day.
  3. Anything less than 2 hours of sun is deep shade.

Provide the Best Start...

  1. Plant a metre or more away from trees, shrubs or walls.
  2. Enrich soil with manure and apply mulch to retain moisture.
  3. We recommend Vitax Q4 All Purpose Premium Plant Food.
