Similar with the Yew unless you stay well on top of it, although they do grow a lot slower.
Also you could do with giving them all a bit more space.
The Laurels will fill out massively in the next few years, turning from little border shrubs to huge hedges.
Ferns tend to do well in shadier spots.
Thanks. This is definitely trial/error to some extent, but all of the plants were bought to enjoy a good bit of shade, due to a willow tree you can't see in the pic, and then normal, or normal to sour soil, they are in normal soil. It's not optimal, true. And yea, they will grow in different ways and so on, we hope they will grow slow. If they don't, then they will come to belong to the "error" part. Or just get trimmed a bit.
