 Sun or Shade Garden?

Select your plants and flowers accordingly

 

Before planting in your garden, find out what areas are full sun, partial sun, shade and partial shade. You can do this by watching throughout the day and taking note of which areas of the garden are sunny or shady and for how long. When purchasing new plants, consult the care tags for light requirements.
