I'm planing on putting in some sugar cane someplace in the garden and I'm not sure where the best place to plant it is. Everywhere I read is says to plant sugar cane in full sun but we all know what that can mean here - fried plants come the summer heat. I have an eastern exposure area that gets afternoon shade, but might it be too much shade for a good crop, or a perfect situation for this climate?
If you have successfully planted sugar cane and had a good harvest come fall what type of sun exposure have you used? Of if your sugar cane endeavors have been dismal failures I'd like to know that too so the rest of us don't repeat your mistakes.
