Marlene Mullet from Ohio focuses on lush shade plants and her thriving Etsy shop.
"Spring gardens are my favorite and here in northeast Ohio we have a long spring season, usually with lots of rain. We have a lot of shade on our property which means I am always on the lookout for unique shade plants! I have found a lot of plants meant for sun also do surprisingly well in shade. I have turned our vegetable garden into a planting bed for perennials, which I sell on my Etsy shop, Green Leaf Gardens. It has always been my dream to sell perennials and I absolutely love it! People think I have so much work with all these plants to care for, but for me it is usually not a chore, but great therapy and keeps me active!"
