The Q&A Archives: Full Sun vs. Partial Sun

Question: I am a newbie to gardening. How can I tell if an area is Full Sun, Partial Sun or Shade? I want to make sure that the plants that I pick will be appropriate for the area.

Answer: Full sunshine is anywhere in your garden that gets at least 8 hours of summer sunshine. Partial sun would be morning sun and afternood shade; shady areas are those that do not get direct sunshine. They can be under the canopy of trees or next to buildings that block the sunlight. Hope this clarifies things for you!
