Importance of direct sun during winter/dormancy
Unfortunately it looks like summer is coming to end, for those of us with limited outdoor space that presents even more challenges.
My balcony receives no direct sunlight from november until march, the only light it gets is the sunlight thatÃ¯Â¿Â½s reflected off the huge white apartment building across the alley. Although there is no direct sunlight it is still bright enough to create shadows. I know that my passionflower and kumquat tree will have to reside in the warmth of my apartment but what about lingonberry bushes, lavender and elderberry bushes? All in containers. Will they be OK staying outside with no direct sunlight during the winter? IÃ¯Â¿Â½m planning on bunching the pots together and insulating with bubble wrap next to a warm wall.
