What are the Best Hedging Plants for: A SHADED LOCATION?

The RHS lists four basic categories of shade and there is a certain irony in their citing of hedges themselves as a major cause of deep shade, especially as there is no hedging plant that will itself thrive in true deep shade:
1. Light shade: A site that is open to the sky, but screened from direct sunlight by an obstacle, such as a high wall or group of trees
2. Partial shade: A site receiving sunlight for two or three hours either in early morning or late evening.  Midday sun supplies considerably more light
3. Moderate shade: Mainly reflected or diffused light, for example through tree canopies
4. Deep shade: Usually under dense deciduous trees, e.g. beech, conifer hedges or overgrown shrubberies
When planting in shade, the cause of the shade is an important factor as a man-made structure such as a wall or fence will generally have little impact on the natural water supply reaching the new plant(s) while nearby trees (especially if large and well-established) or other vegetation may well be taking every available drop for themselves. Also, plants growing in a shady situation (including hedges) will benefit from mulching and/or a controlled dose of general fertiliser.
