Tips for Creating a Container Garden: Find Your Sun

Tip 1: Find Your Sun

To create a spectacular container garden (or gardens!) you must know how much sun the container will receive. Will it be drenched in sun most of the day? Will it only receive a bit of sun in the morning, or the late afternoon? The amount of sun will determine what you can plant in your containers. And you don't need to fear the answer. There are plants for all types of sun exposure. We just need to accurately determine what that exposure will be to successfully plan our container gardening.
