Vegetables You Can Grow in The Shade MARG- I could turn that awkward rock garden under the porch into this sort of garden!

The spot chosen should get as much sun as possible. If the soil is at all heavy it will be necessary to improve the drainage. This is done by digging out an area one foot deep and mixing in a layer of stones, broken bricks or gravel into the subsoil. The top soil is then improved by adding moss peat and grit before returning it to the bed.

Contrasting Hues To inject drama into your rock garden, choose colors opposite each other on the color wheel. Here, the chartreuse of a sedum groundcover offers a striking contrast to the burgundy foliage of Heuchera. The contrasting hues pop against the surrounding rocks and call attention to smaller plants that might otherwise be overlooked.
