shady, clay front garden?

wiltshire, United Kingdom Gb

hello all, right well i have been in my new bungalow for 10 months and the back garden is thriving and stunning, however i have a shady area in the front garden which is in heavy clay and shaded, i have already lost my favourite hellebore, any suggestions on how i could improve this and what plants i can grow, i have a dissability and on benefits so have very little money, thankyou x



You need to get grit and humus dug into the soil. Plants for shade are many and varied. I have areas that only get 3hrs of sun a day and i grow hardy geraniums, anenome japonica, bergenia, ajuga, ferns and many more. I will be able to send you pieces of geranium, ajuga and anenome japonica if you want. send me a pm if you are interested.
