Sun and Shade Growing Tips

Sun Loving Plants

An area exposed to full or near-full sunlight soil is ideal.  Leafy and root vegetables prefer full sun, but will still grow okay in partial shade.  Any site can become a highly productive garden; just choose the right plants for your spot.  Since plants grown in the Garden Patch are healthier, you can even cheat it a little.

Vine crops such as watermelons, cantaloupes, winter squash and cucumbers require large amounts of space.  Putting your GrowBox™ near a fence or trellis may allow for the growing vine.
