I am doing well and have been on my veggie plot for a couple of years. I have decided to plant a perennial border this year around the lawn.
I am really flumoxed when it comes to flowers its all the shade full sun and especially the partial shade thing. I just dont know what is partial shade. looking down my garden the sun rises on the front right hand corner and sets on the far left hand corner.
So looking down the left the sun is only hitting the border in the morning due to a high fence and the far part of the border gets better morning sun. is morning sun partial shade ?
On the right the sun hits from the back of half the border in the morning due to a low chain fence and no planting next door and full afternoon sun hits the front of this border in the afternoon. I know this is a sunny border at the other end on this border it is backed by very high shrubs next door so only gets afternoon sun.
I have purchased a couple of herbaceous border perennial plant collections and just want to plant the plants in the right place.
I have done the standing in the garden all day studying the light and shade but still very unsure on what is partial shade and what is shade any help would be great, i justy cant afford to get this too wrong.
