Growing Basil

How many hours of sun would you recommend for basil? My back balcony only receives 4 hours of direct sunlight in Summer. I'm currently living in a new apartment and am expecting this number to decrease as it approaches Winter. Will the basil survive in this environment?

Seed selling company recommends full sun. Just give it a try and see what happens.
