Yep and Yep although a little bit of shade won't hurt it.

My other plant is partially in the shade and thrives as well so.
But if it had to choose I think it would prefer full sun

Haha I'll send you some by airmail haha

You can prune it as little as you like actually but it is really Thorny indeed

But if you buy one, you can easily get more plants out of it because each time when one vein hits the soil on the ground, it produces little roots and you can plant up those roots to get a whole new plant (I have one huge one on the other side of my garden that I got from this little plant, but I agree that one is grown a bit too wild gonna cut that down in autumn.

It was this big when I bought it 3 years ago:

 (second one hehe) the other 3 have been deleted because they weren't as good as the JWB)

 

But it is also very decorative because as you can see the leaves have beautiful silver foilage underneith.

Really if you have a little bit of space in your garden and looking for a fruit plant, get one of these! The only negative is that it stings like HELL when you are pruning it without gloves
