    Love the blog, you def have a new follower.

    I was won­der­ing if you knew what kind of plants are good for heav­ily shaded gar­dens? we have a tiny tiny city gar­den, but it is sur­rounded by big oak trees which i sus­pect are suck­ing the life out of every­thing, cou­ple that with it not get­ting an ounce of sun and me being a com­plete novice, i’ve no idea what to plant in there, every­thing from last year died.

    thanks for your help!!
