So I don't get much (4hours) of sunlight on my new screened in patio. I have been growing sunflowers (some just bloomed), pumpkins (flowers just showed up but haven't bloomed in a week), watermelons (which are "vining" great but haven't produced Andy flowers), and a few flowers. I was wondering how can I provide the Suns energy and nutrients to make my plants flourish while having a screened in porch..



The only way is to get your plants into the full sun for as long as possible. 4 hours of sun isn't enough for vegetables.

It would be easier to choose plants that prefer less direct sun - sadly not many veg do though.
