Q.Can Little Lime Grow In Indirect Light With No Direct Sun?

Zone 48331 | Sbartlett added on May 22, 2021 | Answered

Our garden bed is on north side of house so the sun is blocked all day long by house. Plants in the bed would receive indirect light all day long but sun won’t reach that area. I’m trying to decide if my little lime will grow there or whether I should plant it somewhere else.

It may grow, slowly, but will not likely produce fruit in shade. I would move it.
