I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question. The spring rush has brought a deluge of questions and we are working hard to catch up!
In the shade of a tree hostas are a popular plant. If the shade is not too dense a dwarf azalea might also work well. Annuals like caladium, impatiens, and wishbone flower (Torenia) work well in a shady environment. Work some compost into the soil and keep the root zone moist but not too soggy wet. Fertilize the plants with a soluble fertilizer solution such as Miracle Gro. This should help get your plants going and blooming well.
Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
