What To Plant In Shade Area With Lots Of Nearby Animals

Question From: Walled Lake, Michigan, United States
Q: Nancy, we have a very small plot - because it's partly in the shade, which annuals would do best? We face a woods so animals are quite prolific - have done some damage in the past. Thanks much!

A: Google part shade loving annuals and you will find lots to choose from. Unfortunately animals love them, so plan on using a repellant. I have had good luck with PlantSkydd liquid for deer and granules for rabbits. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
