Get A Steady Supply Of Fresh Vegetables With Succession Planting

Succession planting is a great way to guarantee a steady vegetable yield. How it works  

Plan your garden before planting. You should consider your garden size, the veggies you wish to cultivate, and their planting requirements (sun exposure, soil type).  

Garden Layout Planning  

Find your area's average last frost date. This will help you decide when to sow vegetables outdoors. For succession planting, stagger planting dates by crop maturity.  

Set Planting Dates  

Select vegetable types with varied maturity dates. You can harvest crops at different periods throughout the season. Find each variety's days to maturity on the seed packet or plant tag.  

Choose Relevant Varieties  

Prepare your garden soil before planting. This includes adding compost or organic waste for fertility and drainage.  

Prep Your Soil  

Start your first crop of veggies on your region's recommended dates. When one crop is harvested or declines, plant another.  

Planting schedule  

Schedule when to plant seeds or transplant seedlings for each crop. The days to maturity and harvest period for each vegetable should be considered in this schedule.  

Planting Succession Plan  

To avoid soil depletion and pests and diseases, rotate crops each season. This helps soil fertility and structure last.
