About me

I have recently moved house and inherited a garden full of very old and mature shrubs which have just been left to grow old. Also there is a large area of bamboo. There is a very dry area at the bottom of the garden caused by 3 tall conifers. Will I be able to grow anything under these trees and if so what do you suggest. I have cut off some dead branches to let some light in. Also would it be best to cut the old and knarled shrubs down and replace or if I cut them down will it revive them?

The soil is mostly clay-like.
