Q. Gardening in Shade

I am looking for what I can only describe as an umbrella for my garden. Something that I can put over my veggies to keep out birds, etc. or keep water from touching the leaves directly. I have seen them on people’s gardens but cannot locate any online or at the local garden store. Have you seen them? Or know where I can purchase one?

The umbrella you are referring to is a floating row cover. I would make an inquiry with your local garden centers for floating row covers or go online and check out mail order garden supply companies.

Q. shade flowers

I love growing flowers, but since I have moved into the woods. I’m having two problems. I was told my foxglove would re-seed itself but have nothing. And I have seeded many kinds of shade flowers and have nothing coming up. We have good dirt, and I’m careful about watering. What am I doing wrong?
