Learn how both sunny and shady locations can present challenges. Defining sun and shade can be a moving target because light varies so greatly with differing conditions. From one garden to another, we also intersect with soil variables, seasonal changes and problems associated with growing plants with different light requirements. Exposure, soil types and moisture all have roles to play in the garden and in the plants that are best for each. Rebecca will illuminate new ideas for creating an interesting palette of colors and textures in the garden as well as factors to help you select plants to achieve success.
