"Some areas of your garden will no doubt have sun all day. However, for some shrubs, this would be too much sun. Partial sun/shade-loving plants require around 4-5 hours a day. However, full sun-loving enjoy as many hours as they can get.
Just have a check in your garden when and where you have shady areas/sun all day."

"Full sun: More than six hours of direct sun per day at midsummer. Light shade: A site that is open to the sky, but screened from direct sunlight by an obstacle, such as a high wall or group of trees. Partial or semi-shade: Three to six hours per day of direct sun at midsummer."
