Pay close attention to the specific light requirements of the plants you choose. Containers filled with sun-loving plants should be located in a spot that is exposed to full sun or receives at least six hours of sun a day.

Vegetables grown in containers should be located in an area that receives 8 to 10 hours of sun exposure a day.
