Flowers

Zone London, E1 6PJ | Anonymous added on June 29, 2017 | Answered

Hi there, I am trying to find suitable flowers to have in our alley way leading up to our building site. We will be purchasing some troughs but I am struggling to find flowers that require little/no sunlight. please could you advise what flowers would be most suitable? We would prefer it not to be climbing flowers or any that are of a height above 30cm. Any help will be very appreciated. Thank you, Rachel
