Dappled Shade Bed

At the far end of the Gravel Garden is a deep bed which is mainly in dappled shade and where two more trees grow – a twisted or contorted Hazel and a weeping Kilmarnock Willow tree, both deciduous trees. The soil is mulched annually with bark. Most of the plants are foliage plants that enjoy a shady position.
