Question: I have a space with direct sunlight to grow things, but the other half of the yard is in the shade. What grows well in indirect sunlight?

Answer: You are so lucky to have both sun and shade growing spots. There are hundreds of plants that love or at least tolerate shade. A few choice trees are shad, redbud, and Japanese maple. For shrubs, try hydrangea, holly, and summersweet. Perennials include many ferns, hosta, lamium, and astilbe, to mention a few.–Gardening experts George and Becky Lohmiller, Hancock, New Hampshire
