the supplier in OR indicated they can grow in full sun in zone 8, however I planted two and the hot sun burned them up. I am trying two more but the leaves are turning brown too. I keep them watered every other day and when it’s >100 then every day but I don’t think they can tolerate all day sun.
Anybody have success growing them in the hot TX heat?August 25, 2023 at 1:35 am ReplyKarenPrivate messageGreenhorn
Hello allen968, maybe you need to protect them for this first year, I’m thinking something like a shade net? They use them in hot places, even just a 15-30% shade factor will block out the worst of the sun.
