How To Throw Shade…

Most people think of shade as something provided by trees and plants, which comes in handy on a really hot summer day.

However, in this day and age, shade has quite a few meanings. For those of you who don’t know, throwing shade is defined by the Urban Dictionary as acting in a casual or disrespectful manner towards someone. Example: That girl threw so much shade at me when talking about my landscape.

In this article, we’re going to bring to light a new meaning of throwing shade. How are we going to do that?

We’re going to share information with you about how to throw shade in your garden, by adding plants that grow well in the shade! (Like what we did there? You know you do.)
