Gothamist Gardening Help
This week, BBG's Native Flora Garden curator Uli Lorimer weighed in on gothamist.com's new green thumb series giving his advice on native plants to grow in sun and shade in backyards around NYC. Some of the plants he suggests for shady backyards include ferns, snakeroot, and goldenrod. To see the full list of Uli's recommendations, visit Guide To Urban Gardening: Your Outdoor Space.
