Does anyone have any suggestions of flowers that are beneficial to pollinators that don’t need full sun? It’s not deep shade but only gets sun in the evening

AnnaF-222099629 said:I recently planted a bush that said it would be happy in 'part shade', but apparently even it can't deal with the darker depths of my garden :(
Out of interest, what was the bush you referred to?
Yes, dark/shaded often means damp/damper, and as Robbo says, will invite slugs etc.
I too am also curious, not because of the slug and other creatures problem, but because I have yet to grow anything in a shaded part of the garden, though a single peach coloured poppy does seem to thrive irrespective, but nothing else has.
I will also add, there is a sycamore tree that may be the cause, because of its water requirement, but I doubt that in view of the fact I did water the ground sufficiently, but not drenching the ground.

Foxgloves will brighten up a shady corner & poisonous to slugs & snails! Also Fuchsias will happily grow in fairly shady areas! Plus Clematis love their roots in shade & can climb up to brightness!
