South Facing Garden
A south-facing border
A south-facing border lies in the sun for long periods every day, so the plants will in any case need regular watering. It is also important to choose plants that can withstand hot sunshine.
A south-facing balcony or patio
A south-facing balcony or patio gets plenty of sun. This means that plants need regular watering, up to twice a day in hot, sunny weather. Small pots dry out faster than large pots, and water evaporates more slowly from synthetic pots or glazed pots. The plants must be real sun-worshippers.
