Tips for Growing Shade Plants

  1. Understand Your Shade: Know whether your garden has full shade, partial shade, or dappled sunlight, and choose plants accordingly.
  2. Prepare the Soil: Enrich your soil with organic matter to ensure good drainage and nutrient availability.
  3. Water Wisely: Shade plants often need less water than sun-loving plants, but it's essential to keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry spells.
  4. Mulch: Apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds, which can compete with your shade plants for nutrients.
