To fill gaps in herbaceous borders or tricky shady areas, try growing some ground cover perennials. Generally low-maintenance and lasting for years, these low-growing, weed-smothering plants will provide colour and interest where other plants might struggle. Try pretty creeping phlox, colourful osteospermum or the wonderfully coloured, semi-evergreen leaves of a heuchera mix.
