Shade loving plants : LUSENET : ACountryPlace : One Thread

Any ideas would be most welcome. It can be bushes, flowers or ground cover. We have not decided what to put in here yet. We moved here last year and there was not much growing in the shady area.

Thanks for your help.

Talk to you later.

Sorry little bit, senior moment.

I came back to the site and did not see my post at the top of the list so I went back and posted again. I forgot that your board goes chronologically, not reverse chronological, like most of the others.

Feel free to delete the 2nd post.

Talk to you later.
