Garden knowledge: Isolated location

The Content Of The Article:

The term "absonnig" usually refers to a location that is bright and not shielded upwards - for example, by a large treetop - but not directly lit by the sun. However, it benefits from intensive scattered light, for example by reflecting the sunlight through white house walls. In a courtyard with bright walls or large glass surfaces, for example, it is so bright at midday, even in front of the north face, that even more hungry plants can still grow well here.

Subsonic, partial shade or light shade?

Even in the specialist literature, the terms are used in an absonnent, light shady and partially shaded, sometimes synonymous. However, they do not mean the same thing: Half shady places in the garden that are temporarily in full shade - either morning and noon, only during lunch time or at noon to evening. They receive no more than four to six hours of sun per day and are generally not exposed to the midday sun. Typical examples of partially shaded locations are the areas in the wandering shade of a dense treetop.

A light shaded location is when the shadows and sunspots alternate in a small space. Such places are often found, for example, under very translucent treetops, such as birch or common lizard (Gleditsia triacanthos). A light-shadowed location may also be exposed to the full sun in the morning or in the evening - unlike the partially shaded location, however, it is not in full shade at any time of the day.
