I would like to start a garden in my courtyard. Each part of the courtyard only receives about 1 hour of direct sunlight a day (there is a small patch of light that travels from one end of the courtyard to the other). The rest of the time there is a lot of indirect sunlight. It is sheltered from the wind and I am based in Sydney, so about to go into a summer that is hot and dry with the occasional heavy thunderstorm. I'd like to have a mixture of fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers. Can you recommend anything in particular?
