Jane, I have mine in part shade. If you have it in full sun, that's fine but you will have to make sure you open it on sunny days as they can get very hot inside.
In my opinion, the best base is sharp sand, grit or gravel and a good 6 inches deep. That way you can bury or part-bury your pots which means less watering and helps protect from frost over the winter.
