    Good morning,

    I had a small plot in mostly shade where azalea bushes were growing for years.

    The azaleas were removed since a few had died off already.

    I’d like to try my hand out at growing veggies on this plot.

    Will it work?

    In the summer, I get a few hours of direct sun on the plot, around 5/6 hours.

    Thank you

    Good morning, Bea!

    Though soil under Azalea quickly turns acidic, the opposite is also true: pH will return to normal in time. Especially if you amend the soil with compost, manure, etc.

    Hello, I agree with Nate, in time soil ph will even out. Until then I’d recommend the following plants: they love acidic soil! You ‘ll realize most of our favorite veggies are there, so get started planting without fear!

    • Tomato
    • Potato
    • Eggplant
    • Pumpkin
    • Peppers
    • Swede
    • Radish
    • Beans
    • Broccoli…
