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?
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
