There may be some of you who have what we like to call a ‘suntrap’ garden. This is where the sun is directly over it for most of the day with very minimal parts of your garden getting shade. For some garden owners this can cause concern when it comes to the health of their plants during those heatwave months.

If like previously stated, you have a garden where there is a huge lack of shade. These 6 plants are full sun loving blooms so will take the stress out of whether they’re getting enough shade and will ensure a colourful summer garden.
