Making the Most of Shade
A few pointers I walked away with....
- planting petunias in different areas of the garden to test the varying degrees of shade
- planting fast growing annual vines for coverage while waiting for perennial vines to fill in
- when planting in shade dust a pinch of mycorrhizal fungi in the hole-very beneficial to plants and is lacking in most home gardens
- spot planting with newspaper and using newspaper in general to give your new plant time to establish itself (do this for veggies but should start in my shade garden as well)
And of course some inspiration.....
