    I have some oregano in partial shade and its doing awesome. I tried some chives and dill this year, they seem to be doing alright. the dill is a little short. I think you can grow most herbs in the some shade, but they might not grow and fast or big as in full sun.

      - - I agree. I have a garden that gets full sun on one half and shade on the other half. All the herbs grow well (if your soil is good), but the same plants in the full sun do the best. Basil is another one you can try growing.
