Gardeners often gripe about how difficult it is to grow plants in shady areas. The trouble mostly occurs when sun-loving plants are planted in the shade. Gardening in the shade can be and should be just as enjoyable as successful as gardening in sunnier areas.

Louisiana residents have appreciated the enjoyable qualities of spicy foods for generations. The fire in Louisiana cooking is provided primarily by the use of hot peppers or products made from them, like red pepper and hot sauce. A backyard vegetable garden wouldn't be complete without a few pepper plants both hot and sweet to pick from.
Almost every landscape has shady areas, and ferns are a great group of plants that are perfect for those shady spots. Early spring is an excellent time to plant ferns in a landscape; it allows them to settle in and establish before the heat of summer arrives. So, if you've got some shady areas and you think ferns would work there now is the time to get them in the ground.
