I have bought a little holiday chalet in woods that has a 4ft silvery metal container on its decking. The decking has a roof so it doesn't get any rain. It gets afternoon sun. It's in a sheltered spot which can be damp because of the trees around and it has some nice, natural looking bushes behind.
It has a hosta & some daffodils in it but nothing else. I'm trying to do a design for it (without much gardening experience ) with the added complication that I won't be there to water it every day. It'll need to be able to go for a week or even more on its own.
I want it to look natural, so I thought some ivies draped at the front would be nice, then maybe get another hosta as that one's done well (though another dead one is there so maybe not). Does anybody have any suggestions for other plants that would work well? I literally have no clue what to look at.
