Limited sunlight for shrubs - Knowledgebase Question

Weatherby Lake, Mi
Question by castle2

My neighbor, a few years back, planted some trees near our shrubs. Over time, as the trees grew, a part of this line of shrubs was getting less and less sunlight each year. As a result, there is less and less foilage. Can these shrubs be exposed to some sort of light that will help them grow foilage?

There really is no substitute for sunshine. Even gro-lites only work for certain plants and only if the lights are kept on for 14-16 hours a day. I think I'd vote for replacing the shrubs with more shade tolerant plants. Sorry!
