Mine are in full sun... BUT... that sun doesn't start until almost noon... then they get sun until sunset. They got peat moss when I prepped the bed for planting, and some acid fertilizer mix... (I checked the Ph with own kit prior and am more maintaining it now at about 5.8 or so... it could be down to 5.5 by now, but I didn't want to to rush it...
They also get some solid heat from a wall they are near- to their east.
Mulched with cocoa bean shells. Watered by weeping hose (the flexible kind that is not drip, but more weeps). https://www.homedepot.com/buy/outdoors-garden-center-watering-hoses/gilmour-5-8-in-x-25-ft-flat-soaker-hose-134686.html
Ph may have changed a bit since planting, but haven't checked lately. The plants are now putting on good foliage growth.
