Sun Strength Testing
Sun Strength Testing Methods
Your sun guide for healthy and lush plants
There are three ways you can determine
how much sun your yard gets.
Reverse fold the card creating a tent. Place the card facing the sun for 10 minutes then compare the test result to the color codes beneath the testing strip. With this information you are ready to purchase your plant that best reflects the needs of your plant.
Reverse fold the cards - place in the locations you have selected for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes compare your results to determine if the amount of sun differs from each location or is consistent . With this information you can now make your purchase.
The testing cards are prepared and placed the same way as in method 1 & 2 , but differ in the fact that you want to determine the amount of sun exposure for the entire day.
After 10 minutes read the result and record the number appearing below the color code that matches your result. Using the Sun Averaging method, your first test of three, should be taken approximately 2 hours after sunrise.
Set a timer for ten minutes at the start of each test. This way you will get a consistent
time of the test. Test on a sunny day.
