For shady spots, an assortment of ferns is perfect for greening up the soil. If your border is at the base of a wall or fence, the soil may well be dry.

Japanese anemones

Japanese anemones are vigorous perennials that can be grown in sun or shade, though they prove especially useful plants for growing in dry shade.

Belladonna lily

Gardening Tips

Grow sweeter tomatoes using baking soda
A lot of people love to grow tomatoes because they are usually much juicier and sweeter than the ones you buy at the supermarket. How can you make even sweeter and more delicious? Try adding some baking soda to the soil.
Plant a seedling in a citrus rind
This method for planting was discovered by the author of My Roman Apartment. The blog owner had vowed to buy nothing new for one calendar year but then ended up slumped over where to plant a new seedling.
Build a strawberry tower
If you want to grow a lot of delicious juicy strawberries and conserve space in the process, the strawberry tower is a great way to do it. What’s really exciting about this setup though is the fact that it allows you to drip water gradually through the whole tower.
