Don't talk yourself into putting plants where they won't thrive! Know for sure which
places in your garden and yard are shade, partial shade, partial sun, or full sun. Plant a single-use SunStick®
on a sunny day; at the end of the day, the color of the "flower" will tell you which plants will
thrive, and which won't survive. Absent-minded? Flower will retain its color, in case you forget it
till the next day.

About Me Avid Gardener
Comments about SunStick®, 3 Pack:
What a dose of reality! All the places I thought were "full sun" yet wondered why plants weren't doing well there, are really part sun/part shade. Yes, I would recommend this because even if it doesn't tell you want you want to hear, you can stop wasting time putting the wrong plants into partial light areas.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Easy to use but ......

Hard to tell what the color was for comparing to see how much sun light the area did get.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Not worth it for one time use.
What was I thinking! Spent the day relaxing and check the sun every hour or so. This was a waste of money.
A little hard to read
from Charlottesville, VA
Kind of like one of those difficult pregnancy tests--hard to tell what color you are seeing and comparing it to the chart. Also, if you'd like to repeat the test, there are no more stickers. You wouldn't use these in obvious full sun or fully shade, so the subtleties are what you need help with. Helped a little but not as I had hoped.

About Me Getting Started
What a joke. Glad they were inexpensive. Put them out but really could not tell the color to match to the paper. Results didn't make sense based on areas. Worth a try but not worth the money.
Good idea, but did not perform well
Love the idea and price point, but I guess you get what you pay for. I placed these in many different light conditions - yet there was very little color difference in the "solar patches" at the end of the day. Might be a fun thing for children to do.Product could use some improvement.
Helped me place vegetables
I could not figure out which spot in my yard would be the best for my vegetables. I have tried a few areas already with little success. The SunStick meter helped me discover where I had the most light and my vegetables did much better last year than before.
This product solved my sunlight problems
from Grand Rapids, MI
I loved this product! I have always struggled with the sunlight in my backyard because of various trees. I was always trying to figure out the best place to put different pereniels. I used all three tests and finally figured out where the most sun is for my roses and where the deep shade versus part-sun is. I moved my plants accordingly and I think they'll thrive much more. I'm puttng in a new bed in the front and found out it only gets about 5 hours of sunlight - I thought it had more. Great gift too!
from Fort Collins, CO
I am not sure about the accuracy of the sun sticks. I was excited to use these to verify the areas that I thought are in partial sun versus full sun. No matter where I placed them it seems they all read partial sun/shade even in areas I know are in full sun. So not sure I would recommend these.
