Cannot grow a plants needing direct sun from my open veranda in full shade. What annuals/perennials do you recommend? Any herbs? Thanks so much!

Thank you for your question about gardening in the shade. Rutgers has an excellent Extension article on this topic, which addresses various plants' sun, water and space requirements (since I'm assuming your plants are all in containers) which you can read here. The list of plants is at the end of the article, with notations about each of their needs. I hope this is helpful. Good luck!
