    An important part of planning a garden is understanding its light and shade. This has become much easier with the introduction of a new app: "Sun and Shade Analyzer". Go to any location in your garden, use the app to scan the surroundings, and in a few seconds, it will tell you the average hours of sunlight at this location over your growing season! You can even enable "foliage simulation" so that you can take measurements in the winter.
