Cooling off in the shade with beauty

Want to know what to plant in the shade?  We get a lot of questions, and hope to answer just a few.  Are your plants in deep shade or is there a trickle of light that shines through for only a few hours in the day.  Are your plants in an area with trees covering the base, and having a hard time deciding what to plant? 
Dark shade...
Whether you decide to plant clivia, bleeding hearts or Black Negligee Snakeroot, maybe even ferns, as there are many choices available to you.
Partial sun...
When we're talking partial sun, or partial shade...both are very much the same.  The meanings are generally fewer than four to six hours of sunlight per day.  Hosta, Japanese shrub mint, or Bergenia are some great choices for your garden.
Slugs and snails...why are they eating everything??
You can control these little critters by using a can of old beer...just poor some out on a dish (not sure why, but the little buggers love beer) or try using some non-toxic snail and slug bait.  Non harmful to your pets, but a great way to control these slimy creatures...
