edible plants for shady areas

These lists are of plants that (should) handle shady areas well. Two categories – Full shade & part shade.

Use this as a guide though. Whether plants will grow in shade depends on what it’s other conditions are like. I’d give any plant a go as no other microclimate is just like yours.

On the other hand, some morning sun seems to be helpful to all plants as far as I can tell. So if you can find a shady spot with a bit of morning sun, most of these plants should thrive there.
