I have the opportunity to plant a veg plot in my parents back garden. It is however very shaded by very big conifer trees. Would this inhibit growth? I hope not as am very anxious to get started and have no space of my own.

It is next to impossible to grow vegetables with any great success in heavy shade. They like full sunshine for good growth. Also the tree roots would be under the soil and cause big problems for digging and take up water.
