    Hi All ,
    I'm looking to plant up my north facing front garden,in particular against a fence which sees very little direct sun. I've tried online to establish what plants would flourish in the shade, however I would prefer actual recommends from experience.
    I'm looking for something tall to mask the fence and a bit of colour in front as bedding plants.
    Any thoughts?
    Cheers
    Doug

    I can recommend hostas, ferns, brunnera, ivy, euonymous fortuneii, mahonia, alchemilla molis, anemone blanda, cyclamen, snowdrops, vinca. Not all varieties may be suitable; check.

    The RHS page at https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=934 is worth a look (follow the links).
    They say some camelias are shade-loving, which would be lovely - at least for the short period that they flower. Also maybe some rhododendrons/azaleas and a few climbing roses.

    To mask a shady fence evergreen honeysuckle is a good option, Lonicera japonica halliana.

    Variageted bamboo perhaps.
