When you head to your local nursery to buy plants for your garden, you've probably noticed how plants have labels with terms like Full Sun, Partial Sun, Partial Shade and Full Shade.

But how do you know for sure if the spot you where you want to plant has the correct type of sunlight for it to thrive?

The Sun Stick light measuring meter was Member Tested and Recommended by the National Home Gardening Club.

This Sunlight Measuring Tool is a great way to determine how much light each area of your garden receives. It gives an easy-to-read measurement of the amount of sun that plants will have available, and can be used to choose which plants will thrive in the area.

The SunStick was created by two avid gardeners who were tired of watching plants die in the wrong conditions. Poor planting choices are not only cruel, but they can also cost money and valuable time. Another reason to avoid improper planting is that when plants die in an area, they may contaminate the soil with bacteria and fungus that will harm other plants.

Different plants use different types of chlorophyll and need different amounts of sunlight. Some plants have evolved to thrive in the shade and some do best in direct sunlight. Too much or too little sunlight can stress your plants, reducing their ability to fight disease, grow healthy flowers, or produce fruit. With a Sun Stick, you can ensure that your plants will get the right amount of sunlight, which leads to happier, healthier plants and more efficient use of your space.

Each order includes one measuring sticks shaped like flowers, as well as three one-time use photo-reactive sensors (enclosed in envelops). The light sensitive paper takes only one day to work.

Put one in the ground where you want to put you plant, and then come back at the end of the day to see how much sun that area receives. It's that simple!

An indoor version of the Sun Stick and additional refill packs are also available. You can save on shipping by adding refill packs to your order in the options menu above.
