Choosing a good species and planting at the right time is not enough to ensure the development of your plant: selecting a good location is also one of the essential conditions. It is essential to make an accurate analysis of the location before planting your latest finds. Soil samples, weather conditions, wind measurement… will guarantee your plantations the best of success.
Plants and the Sun
All plants need sunlight in order to grow. Plants planted in areas that are too shaded may not produce flowers or fruit, or even die. But too much sunlight can also be harmful to the growth of a plant. Plants that are said to be in full sun tolerate or may even need direct and prolonged sunlight to thrive. They are generally classified in the category of Mediterranean or exotic plants.
Plants of full sun, ideal for gardens facing south
To create a garden that is particularly warm and bathed in light, it is advisable to opt for plants for the sun. And the choice is quite large. For example, roses, carnations or thyme can be planted. In the category of trees and shrubs, you can also opt for fig, hibiscus, mimosa and lavender. As for climbing plants, we will rather choose jasmine or passionflower. Be careful though, because even if sunlit plants love heat, you shouldn't forget to water them at dusk, abundantly but not too often.
