The Q&A Archives: What is best to plant?

Question: I have a large terra cotta pot outside, that only receives sun in the mornings and is shaded by my building during the afternoons. What kind of things can I plant in it?

Answer: Actually, morning sun with protection from hot afternoon sun is ideal for containers, as it helps maintain a more moderate soil temperature. You can plant just about anything! Just choose plants that have the same water and sun exposure requirements. Good luck!
