Growing sunflowers in partial shade along fence

Sunflowers are a great addition to a vegetable garden. They look stunning and attract heaps of beneficial insects.
Problem is that they also use up lots of space. My sunniest spots are all planted up with veggies so I decided to plant my sunflowers in
partial shade next to a wooden fence. Those are russian giant sunflowers. They’ll grow very tall.

I transplanted them a few days ago and they seem happy in their new spot. They receive a few hours morning sun and I hope that will be enough for them.
