How much is TOO much???

ingeborgdotSeptember 22, 2012

For planting a Picea orientalis Tom Thumb, how much sun is TOO much sun? I have a spot that is very sheltered from wind but will get about 3- 4 hours of hot sun. Anyone care to help on this?

Mine burned in 6 hours of east and south sun although this was year one.

After it put out lammas growth it looked good August through now.

With that said it only looked horrible the month of July.

It's 'Tom Thumb Gold' instead of just 'Tom Thumb'...

mine is in 20 minutes of sun ... if that.. the tricolor may have put it in no direct sun ...

and it looks fine.. year around ...

its a MINI ... put it in shade.. so what if it gets a reduces growth rate due to no sun.. that is kinda the whole point on a mini ...

since it is basically skylands [a broom off of] ... it should have the same sun requirement ... so if anyone wants to chime in on their trick for that one.. it might apply to yours ... also

btw.. i dont care if mine is brilliant yellow ... so sun is NOT requisite ...

btw, again .. winter is irrelevant for me.. wind or sun.. since NORMALLY.. its buried in snow ... and usually blanketed in fallen leaves ...
