The Q&A Archives: sun needs

Question: Hi,
Could you please tell me how many hours of daily sun would a crab apple need to flourish?

Also, how many hours of daily sun would an orange tree need to produce sweet oranges?


Answer: Both your crabapple and citrus tree will perform best in at least 8 hours of direct sunshine. You might be able to get by with only 6 hours for the crabapple, but less than 8 hours for the citrus will result in smaller, less robust oranges.

Best wishes with your landscape!
