You may have an okay yield, but it's been my experience that the more sun, the better.

I would have to say I agree..With what I have limited space and what to deal with. I figure it is worth a shot. If they do not suceed at all I will move them next year. I figure they will yield very little the first summer..I just want to see tham grow.
