Woodland Heavy Shade Planting

piermont added on June 18, 2011 | Answered

Have recently fenced off a half acre block with mature beech and lime trees and was wondering what plants would be best to plant and what, if any, grasses would grow under this canopy. It's very shady, so ground holds moisture but also in Scottish borders (east, height 600 ft).
