Other suggestions

My shade garden has the following:
-hostas (obviously not evergreen)
-impatiens (annual)
-lariope (good choice for you I think-- do a google search. It's a grasslike plant that spreads well and has spiky purple flowers in summer)
-pachysandra (good groundcover, grows to about 8 in tall, has little white flowers in spring, takes a couple years to really proliferate)
Good luck!

Oops - bought Miracle-Gro garden soil instead..

Of potting soil. The garden soil is for use in-ground only (not potting) and requires mixing it with the present garden soil (50-50 mix).
Unfortunately I live in a condominium and don't have access to any present garden soil.
I want to use the Miracle-Gro garden soil for potting if I can. Is there anything(s) I can buy to mix with it so I can do this?
Just potting up some vinca minor starts (dug with roots) and some annual flowers, such as impatiens and begonias.
