Hi, Do they prefer sunlight, shade or semi shade?

Bright sunlight is best and no need to water heavily. ;-)

Most vegetables need a fair amount of sunlight, that is one of the main ingredients for them to grow. Some only need 4-6 hrs, some 6-8 hrs. Try growing something in shade and see how it grows. Read up on the internet how many hours of sun plants need.
