Here’s how you can feed your entire family with these backyard fruit growing tips. Jams and jellies never tasted as good as when you use fresh fruit right out of your own garden.
Currants and Gooseberries grow almost identically so rather than repeat myself, here’s how you succeed with them in your backyard garden
Here Are Six Kinds of Fruit That Will Grow In Reduced Sunlight
OK – the first thing to understand is that these fruit species all prefer full sun. But, they do survive with lowered harvests in reduced sunlight. It’s impossible to say XX hours of sunlight because it depends on where you live. 5 hours of sunlight in Georgia during the summer is going to be a lot more “heat units” (a measure of light and heat that promotes growth) than 5 hours of sunlight here in Ontario, Canada.
What’s this mean? It means if you have a garden with reduced sunlight (and I don’t mean deep shade) then start with these small fruit plants and test them in different locations (always giving them the most sunlight you can) 🙂
- Strawberries (we grow ours in about 6 hours of sunlight a day)
- Rhubarb (Ours get 6 hours of morning and noon sun per day)
- Currants and Gooseberries
