Vegetables Grow Well In The Shade

Vegetables Grow Well In The Shade

#11 Radishes

Best planted in spring or at the end of summer because this vegetable really does not like the extreme heat of summer. They are wonderful little garden gems because they mature fast, leaving you with plenty of room in the garden for a second crop.

#12 Turnips

Turnips are an acquired taste. If that is the case, perhaps you still have some acquiring to do. After all, turnips have been a staple crop, even when other vegetables have failed.

#13 Watercress

One more perennial to make the list of shade-tolerant greens is watercress. They contain the highest amounts of vitamins and minerals. Growing in the shade for a small amount of peppery watercress that you can harvest throughout the year.

#14 Arugula (Rocket)

With every peppery bite, you can feel the strength of the sun in arugula. When it is grown in the shade, it will be exactly the same. Let provide some shade for your garden rocket so that it will not bolt in the heat.

#15 Brussels Sprouts

Brussels sprouts thrive in shade. Another benefit of growing Brussels sprouts is that they can be harvested well into the winter months. Use their height to your advantage and plant a shorter season crop between the rows of peas and bush beans are a great start.

#16 Kale

Kale will tolerate cooler temperatures and will provide you with nutritious greens late into fall.

#17 Lettuce

For salads, burger toppings, and lettuce soup, you’ll be happy to harvest handfuls of fresh leaves from your backyard garden. Grow them in shade and make sure you have a fence to keep unwanted visitors away like chickens or ducks.

#18 Mustard Greens

Collard greens grow well in a shady spot with 4 hours or so of sunlight

#19 Sorrel

There are 2 shade-loving types to plant in your garden: French sorrel and Garden sorrel. Cut a few leaves and they will come back.

#20 Spinach

Spinach prefers cooler weather, so be sure to plant it early enough in the season, keep it watered regularly and give it all the shade it can handle.

#21 Swiss Chard

Swiss chard is easy to grow, low-maintenance, yet productive and shade-tolerant too. It provides a lot of nutrients like vitamin A and C, calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium.
