Answer: Dear Kath,

What a great venture to do with your children. I am sure you will have lots of fun growing your own vegetables. Usually vegetables need about 6 hours of sunlight but there are some that will survive on less number of hours.

Try growing some baby spinach, celery, mesclun mix, radish, parsley and chives.

If have attached a link from our website which I trust you will find useful.
