|Basically, a good rule to remember is that if you grow a plant for the fruit or the root, it needs full sun. If you grow it for the leaves, stems, or buds, a little shade will be just fine. Beets, Salad Greens, such as leaf lettuce, arugula, endive, and cress, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Peas, Brussels Sprouts, Radishes, Swiss Chard, Leafy Greens, such as collards, mustard greens, spinach, and kale, and Beans will all grow in limited sunlight. Ornamental plants such as impatiens, nasturtium (Tropaeolum), flowering tobacco(Nicotiana), pansy (Viola), lobelia (Lobelia), bachelor button (Centaurea), Pinks (Dianthus), bells of Ireland (Moluccella), forget-me-not (Myosotis), baby blue eyes (Nemophila), perilla (Perilla), fuchsia (Fucshia), and elephant ear (Colocasia) all grow well in shady sites. Enjoy your new garden!
