Planting for cool, shady conditions under and around trees
An urban garden was transformed by soft woodland planting. All photos are by Anna Guest.
Treasures tucked at the base of a tree.
Cool colours create a calm atmosphere.
A fallen tree provides a place for ferns.
The planting thickens – no place for weeds.
Dwarf forms of bulbs were chosen.
Foliage gives different textures.
Acers give glorious colour.
Dark leaves of Heuchera provide a contrast.
Tree ferns create a wonderful canopy.
A symphony of greens – a tranquil place.
Grasses merge with the ferns to give a different texture.
