Gardening in the Shade
Margery Fish treats shady areas not as problem patches to be filled with humble, ground cover plants, but as opportunities to paint an exciting canvas with textures and foliage effects not possible under the glare of the sun.Many of the plantings used as examples are taken from Fish's garden at East Lambrook Manor in Somerset.
