is there a place for container garden questions?

I have a large front porch facing North, but it is open shade, so bright shade. No direct sun ever, tho. My house is an L shape, so the door is actually in the corner, so the darkest area. I did hostas, boston ferns, some rex begonias, sweet potato vines, and heuchera in pots last year, which looked good, then put a christmas tree in a large pot for the holidays, and now that I removed that it is BARE. Too early for anything but petunias, and that is not enough height.

Any suggestions? My porch is screaming for some nature.

Yes, in the Indoor Gardening Forum. Ask away.
