I’m a city gardener with experience in community vegetable plots and containers, but I’m daunted by perennials. I’m about to take possession of a "proper" garden which has 3 very old, very huge pine trees flanking the house. I would love some advice on what might grow in the permanent shade beneath them. Also I think that I’ve read warnings about using the needles in mulch or compost and I’m wondering if that’s a no no?
Any and all advice would be appreciated!
