These areas dry out quickly and are often forgotten about in the winter when it’s raining. If garden beds are established under eaves, ensure watering continues through winter. Apply Seasol every fortnight to month and keep soil damp in winter, even when the irrigation system is turned off and fertilise at the beginning of spring and autumn.

Other shaded areas

  • South side gardens – these areas are often in full shade in winter and as the sun rises in the summer months bear the brunt of the searing summer heat. Select varieties of plants that will tolerate both shade and sun.
  • Shaded by a fence – Usually the easiest are to grow when it comes to shade classification because even though its shaded, there is sufficient light around the plants and most plants will thrive.
