    Any recommendations for shrubs that will survive in poor dry soil, deep shade under a large tree?

    Suitable for temperatures in the South of Scotland.

    Most varieties of Juniper will do well in these types of conditions. They are hardy evergreens that weather cooler temperate zones, don't really need a lot of direct sunlight and prosper in just about any type of soil.

    Heuchera do well, another name is coral bells. Castiron plant (aspidistra) and Gold Dust plant (Aucuba). Another is Clivia, a nice winter flowering bulb plant. One final suggestion is Sanseveria or Mother- in- law's tongue. I hope this helps.

    Nothing, don't lose your hair trying to do that. Mulch is nice and clean.
