Garden Location Item Number: garden-locationChoosing the right location for your garden is as vital as to what grows in it. One of the key elements to the success or mediocrity of your garden is sunlight. Your garden should receive a minimum of 6 hours direct sunlight. However, 8-10 hours is ideal and will produce a far superior yield. Avoid planting near trees and shrubs, your garden will compete with them for sun, water, and nutrients. Their roots will also invade garden space. Avoid placing gardens in low spots, they are slow to warm in the spring, places for frost to settle, and poorly irrigated causing root rot.
