Question From: L. Bockol - West Orange, New Jersey, United States
Q: I have a small plot of soil (3x5') next to my house, in the shade of a mature spruce tree. Is there anything that might thrive there, given the shade and the plethora of fallen needles? It has been vacant for as long as I've lived here.
If weeds don't grow there, chances are nothing else will. Lack of sun and dry soil are the issues. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
