    I have slow worms in my garden and have no idea what they eat. I know cats eat them given half a chance. Yucky. Are they beneficial? They love the compost heap.

    Nice Video clip! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your opinion. Have you tried – Saankramer Breathtaking Design System (do a search on google)? It is a great one off product for learning how to design an amazing dream landscape minus the normal expense. Ive heard some great things about it and my cousin got excellent success with it.

    Well that's good news! I just moved to a new home with a garden that's partially shaded by neighbouring trees and fences and I was worried about what would grow! First step…To start my compost heap!

    Cilantro will thrive and be slower to bolt in deep shade.

    I had trouble growing broccoli this year. I’m in zone 7 using raised beds. I I started from seed in late summer for a fall crop, but only got leaves. No green. What did I do wrong?

    I live on the side of an apartment building that doesn't really get any sun, would I be able to grow anything on my balcony?

    Wild violets (Viola spp.) are called a lawn weed, but are delicious perennial greens. They make larger leaves in deep shade under other plants. I quit growing lettuce after I started eating viola leaves, too tasty. If they come up where you don't want them, eat those first. If they have a good root, replant the root elsewhere.

    i have a long bed that is shaded by a 6ft fence and the neighbor's overhanging apple trees. I have had great success growing corn, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, strawberries, raspberries and zucchinis that fruited prolifically. My potatoes grew great although seemed to have lower yields. The failures were cucumbers that stayed stunted before dieing and spaghetti squash which stayed stunted till the end of summer when it suddenly took of but the frost took it out before any squash formed. I also have a bed that is in shade till late afternoon that produced great snow peas and beans, last year i planted capsicum (bell peppers) that remained small yet started producing lots of small peppers at the end of summer. and this year (end of spring here now) i planted 2 zucchinis which are huge and fruiting, in the front of the bed i have tented brussel sprouts in curtains to avoided cabbage loopers and they are looking very healthy.

    3-4 hrs of sun? I don't call that shade. I would love to know what grows in a garden shady all winter till the sun comes around.
