- Sun Requirements for Plants:
- Full Sun: 6+ hours of direct sunlight per day
- Partial Shade: 3-6 hours of direct sunlight per day
- Woodland or Shade: Dappled or mostly indirect sun, generally more than 1 tree or 1 very large tree or building will create this shade
- Typical Soils for Plants:
- Sandy: Well-drained, largest particles of all soil types. Not generally a strong start for plants because it’s difficult to root and nutrients are often not present due to runoff.
- Clay: The opposite of sand, clay has the smallest particles and retains the most water. Plenty of plants have adapted to this soil type and will thrive in the right conditions!
- Silt: Somewhere in between sand & clay is silt. Silt retains some water and some nutrients but still doesn’t hold as much water as most gardeners would like.
- Loam: This is what you buy at the store – a combination of all three soils mixed with a loose humus layer (fresh compost). It is the most productive, though rarely found in nature.
