Some notes on woodland and shade plantings

Please be aware that in areas which are under particularly heavy shade the young plants within the shade tolerant turf will be slow to grow to maturity. The best product to use in the more heavily shaded areas would be my wild flower bulbs and rhizomes click here to view these or my mature plant collections for woodland and shade click here to view these.

It is important to remove leaf fall off the wild flower turf at the end of the year, using a leaf blower is the easiest method.

Turf management:

Ideally cut the plant growth once every Autumn (other cuts optional) and clear the cuttings. If near trees remove leaf fall from the turf once the leaves have all fallen.
