Definition of dry shade

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

Many people think of shady spots as naturally moist as well as dark. However, many areas shaded by trees have relatively dry soil because rain cannot easily penetrate within the drip line and ground moisture is consumed by the roots of the tree.

Consider carefully the soil conditions before planting shade-loving plants with high moisture needs beneath large trees.
