Plants for shade, here's 10 plants for dark and gloomy places
In some respects, plants are rather like people. But far less vocal. Many British folk seem to be obsessed by the weather and a multitude feel unable to contend with rain, gloomy skies, shade, or indeed, winter in general. Their inability to cope could be compared to the way that plants behave when they are placed within an environment that is alien
to them. Place a sun-loving succulent in a damp, gloomy corner and it will fade away. Bright and beautiful flowers in the garden often need sunshine. The same principle applies indoors. The position of house plants
needs to be matched to their temperament if they are to thrive. In fact, the most common cause of death to house plants
is over-watering, followed by lack of light.
