Description

Our Perennial Shade Collection offers a diverse range of expertly grown plants specifically suited for the shaded or dappled areas in your garden. Perfect for maximising the potential of darker spots, this collection provides perennials with a wealth of shape, texture, and colour to enhance your shaded garden spaces. Your Golden Valley Plants Perennial Shade Collection guarantees a thoughtfully curated assortment of perfectly paired shade-loving plants, handpicked from our Herefordshire nursery by our team of experts. Carefully selected for their readiness and suitability for the current season, these plants are guaranteed to thrive in your garden. The benefits of our Shade Collection are manifold. By investing in shade-tolerant plants, gardeners can transform previously underutilized areas into vibrant and visually appealing spaces. Additionally, these plants are often more resilient to fluctuations in temperature and require less water, making them ideal for low-maintenance gardening. Furthermore, our Shade Collection promotes biodiversity by providing habitat and food sources for shade-loving wildlife, such as birds and insects. With a rotating selection tailored to each season, you can always expect a fresh and enduring display that enhances the beauty and diversity of your garden.

Planting Conditions

When planting your Perennial Shade Collection, choose locations that offer partial to full shade throughout the day, avoiding areas with intense sunlight. We recommend ensuring the soil is rich in organic matter and well-drained to support healthy root growth. Dig holes slightly larger than the plant's root ball and backfill with soil mixed with compost. Space the plants according to their mature size, allowing for proper air circulation. We recommend considering each plant's individual requirements and consider their growth habits to create a harmonious and thriving shade garden.

Watering & Feeding

Maintain consistent moisture levels for your Perennial Shade Collection by watering regularly, especially during dry spells, to ensure the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged. Apply water directly to the soil to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to fungal diseases. Feeding requirements vary among plants, so we suggest tailoring fertilisation based on individual needs. Apply a balanced fertiliser in Spring to promote healthy growth, and supplement with occasional doses of organic compost or liquid fertiliser throughout the growing season to support robust foliage and flowering.

General Care

Care for your Perennial Shade Collection involves monitoring for pests and diseases, particularly in shaded areas where humidity can exacerbate issues. Regularly inspect plants for signs of pests like aphids or fungal diseases such as powdery mildew. Prune dead or diseased foliage to promote air circulation and prevent the spread of disease. Additionally, we recommend removing spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and maintain a tidy appearance. While individual plants may have specific pruning needs, a general rule is to trim back any damaged or overgrown growth to maintain overall plant health and vigour.
