I've just bought a new house and was hoping to set up a fruit, veg and herb garden. Unfortunately I've found that the house completely blocks all direct sunlight from the back garden. Even allowing for the sun being higher in the summer I'll be lucky if it skims half way down the back fence.
As it's an open space that doesn't seem dark could I still create a kitchen garden? Or would I be setting myself up for a constant struggle and disappointing results? Would it be better to drop the idea and create a courtyard garden more suited to light shade?
Thanks for your advice - it's the first garden of my own and I can't afford to waste the money involved in making the wrong decision.
