Plants That Prefer The Dark

As we have discussed, there are a number of species that exhibit a preference for living in the underground. 

Many of them are popular vegetable garden varieties with thick seed casings that sprout well when planted deep and dark. 

Growing nasturtium is beneficial. Direct-sow nasturtium seeds three times their diameter in organic soil. Bright round-leaved seedlings will appear!
