When we think of vegetable gardening, we’re often convinced that FULL SUN is the only way we’ll be successful. This couldn’t be more wrong! There are plenty of shade friendly plants that will thrive in 2-5 hours of sun.
On top of that, there are some plants that won’t LOVE being in shade, but will TOLERATE it, which allows you to squeeze out even more harvests from spaces you might typically ignore in your garden.
12 Perfect Vegetables To Grow in a Shady Garden Space:
- Leaf Lettuce
- Endive & Escarole
- Determinate Cold-hardy Tomatoes
- Bush Beans
- Basil and other herbs
- Cilantro and Parsley
- Green Onions
