    I want to plant a couple hanging baskets for my front porch.* It only gets a little morning sun as it's on the east side of the house with an overhang.* I want to plant something different.* Are there any herbs or anything that grow in shady areas?

    There aren't many herbs that will grow in low light.* For hanging baskets in part sun consider Angelica, Catnip, Chervil, Chives, Lemon Balm, sweet Marjoram, Oregano, Parsley, Peppermint, Spearmint and Sweet woodruff.

    For something else different I like Torenia aka Wishbone flower.

    Nasturtium will grow in part sun and is edible.* Fuschia is another that likes part sun.* The triphylla varieties are more upright.* I like them and grow Fuchsia 'Gartenmeister Bonstedt'.* Here's pic of a very mature plant.* I overwinter mine indoors as it's not hardy in my zone 7 garden and I can't always find it every year.

    This UK site has lots of Fuchsias to drool over.
