Q.Planting petunias and superbells under roof eaves

Zone Brisbane | Anonymous added on September 28, 2020 | Answered

I live in Brisbane Australia. I would love to put some flowering plantars under my windows facing south. I’m considering a trough container garden w superbells, petunias, lobelia and silver falls. It’s very sunny in this area (despite facing south). However, given the eaves, it will probably not be direct sunlight. Is that a no go?
