The woodland garden is a place where magic seems to occur, where surprises occur and beauty is continual. The plants of the woodland want a shady location, as well as a moist and humus-rich soil. If a dry spell occurs, some woodland plants will go dormant and remain so until conditions favor regrowth - sometimes they will need the coming of the new year to reappear.
One of the great assets of a woodland garden is the everchanging flora that occurs through the seasons. From earliest spring to snowfall, a woodland garden is always changing.
