Full or partial sun?

Posted: 17/05/2014 at 15:57

all my babies, and plants awaiting a home, are standing where the sun has gone by midday whether they are sun or shade lovers. They get fried in the sun and I have to water too much

We never did define 'average gardener' did we?

I don't think I want to be average

Not much different in sizes but there are other colours. I think orange is the basic colour and whites, pinks, yellows have been bred. Some are nice, I like the orange best

Still a bit bigger than 16 inches but I'd never heard of Barnsley Baby. I thought you meant a baby  Lavatera 'Barnsley'.

That looks like an eschscholtzia, Californian poppy. Annual, will self seed if you let it

They're not small, a metre or more in all directions. 

Plant ID please

The night shade will seed and unless you have a big garden one is plenty. It's poisonous, the berries at least, possibly other parts.

Phytolacca is another large plant that seeds about the garden. Enormous roots but not invasive by roots, just by seed. More poisonous berries.

I may be wrong on the phytolacca, mine are nowhere near flowering but there are other species that might be earlier. Mine is P.americana according to its label. I have seen others that aren't quite like mine with the same label.
