Borders in the back garden.

The conservatory border, shady. Hostas, Rodgersia, Lilies to the right.

Just including the garden table

Garage border on the right, including at the front of the pic some Roscoeas, still in their pots.

Part of the back fence border to the left. Clematis Gravtyre Beauty up the pole with a Billardera growing up the guy rope in front.

Thanks for posting, Siris, a fascinating look round. As Klahanie says, I, too, was impressed with how green everything looks. The hostas are amazing and I wish I could get the lilies in my place to grow that well!

Again I've said it before, Sue..I love your shady spots! Gorgeous planting, lush and verdant.

Thank you for your comments. I have been cutting off some of the leaves on some of the lush Hostas to let the surrounding plants have a bit more light/space. In the first pic there is a drain cover in the right corner with a "table" on which I stand pots of Lily seedlings, but the ones in front of that are planted into the ground.
No slug/snail damage on the Hostas but Lily Beetles know there is a beetle creche in that corner.

I too love your shady areas! It's amazing how many plants there are for the shade!
I have been wondering what large plant I can put in my shady area and I forgot about Rodgersia!
You have some plants I haven't even heard of!
