Well, I’m up here in Seattle and the days are getting shorter and shorter. As a newbie grower, I want to maximize, as best I can, the amount of sun to my plants.
Because I’m in a neighborhood that has houses on both sides, my plants don’t receive every hour of sun that I wish they could. We’re probably getting 13-14 hours of sun right now - my plants get about 9-10 per day.
It seems like the last 5 or so are when the sun is waning. I’m wondering if anyone else has thought about or had any experience in tipping their containers towards the setting sun in order to (hopefully) max out its value? For the last week or so I’ve been sticking a brick paver (about 1 and 1/2" thick) under on side of my containers.
I know the side / lower buds need to get their time in the sun and mine do - I try to spin the containers during the day when my containers are sitting flat.
Tipping containers for the last half of the day? Yeah or nay? You guys have more experience than I’ll ever have. What say you?
