The best plants are the ones you like the look of!

Most trees, shrubs and perennial flowers will grow well in this situation. You need to choose perhaps 1 or 2 garden trees, 1 at the end and one part-way along. Some shrubs near them and away from them to give structure and then perennial flowers to fill in between the shrubs.

This range of plants will give different seasons of interest, height and the bulk to fill the space available to reduce weeds. If you go to our Plant finder you will find a good choice of kinds:
