Walking around the neighborhood we can’t help but notice inpatiens and other shade loving plants withering where planted in full sun.

On the other hand, we see plenty of tomatoes planted in full shade, long and leggy and stretching for bits of sunlight.

A shade plant might tolerate some sun and a sun loving plant might do fine with some shade, but best to choose a place where they will thrive. Perhaps we’ll offer our plant transfer services, moving the right plant to the right place.

And on this 100+ degree day, remember

“if you plant a tree [or anything else] you must water it too.”
– Tamil proverb
