Stone Fruit

I live in southern Tasmania and I have a garden bed that gets very little sun during the winter but quite a bit during the summer. My question is: how much direct sun do peach and nectarine trees need both during their growing cycle and while dormant?

During the growing cycle, they will need 6-8 hours of sun a day. During the dormant season, they really don’t need any sun at all. The sun is used by the leaves and if they don’t have leaves, they can’t use the sun.
