As our days continue to lengthen and we enjoy more sunlit hours, we are going to talk about the importance of plant placement in relation to sunlight requirements.
Plants usually come with a tag or instructions that states the amount of sunlight the plant needs. The sunlight requirements are usually broken down into four categories:
- full sun (6+ hours of direct sun)
- partial sun (3-6 hours of direct sun)
- partial shade (3-6 hours of sun but protection from mid-day sun)
- full shade (less than 3 hours of direct sun)
