Answer: We always try to encourage new gardeners, and starting with easy plants grown from seed is the best way to gain gardening experience. Pansies have cute faces, and like growing in shady gardens. Impatiens are easy to grow from seed, Forget-Me-Not and Colombine are good choices, as well. If you can buy starts from a local nursery, you can get a jump start on the season and your plants will bloom sooner. Try buying and planting Fuchsia's and Bleeding Heart in your shady garden. Fuchsia's have beautiful flowers, and Dicentra (Bleeding Heart) have colorful heart-shaped flowers. Good luck with your new garden!
