Here is a link that will definitely get you started.

Shade Garden

If you could answer a few questions you will get much more specific help from our expert members.

What zone are you in?

Is the tree wide enough that it will actually shade the plant all day? or will it get some sun?

How far off the ground are the lowest branches? Some pines lose their lower branches as they get older some grow almost all the way to the ground.

What kind of soil is it? Dry/Moist
