Answer: There are herbs that do better in shade than sun, including oregano, costmary and lemon balm. Still, I recommend creating a raised bed so there will be less competition from tree roots, and locate it in the very sunniest spot. Other herbs that do well in half to 3/4 shade are parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, borage, lovage and fennel. For expert advise on the subject, though, I recommend contacting Richter (The Herb Specialists) via their web site (www.richters.com). They have a wonderfully wide variety of herbs to offer.
