"I've done fairly well during the cool season with lettuce hanging on the east wall of my house.  It gets good morning sun but shade past about 11:45 am. Aloe likes shade.  Mint and watercress will do well in shade."

Best Plants to Grow in Morning Sun?

Hello everyone.  Just wondering about any experience/success with plants grown in a location that only receives morning sun...  Although the room is very bright and has large south facing windows, the location would be receiving direct sunlight only in the morning.  I'm assuming cool season crops (leafy greens) would do best?  Any advice on different plants or varieties that do well with less direct sunlight is greatly appreciated. -LeeroySee More
