Today’s busy gardeners want and need low maintenance landscapes. They desire a beautiful yard but often don’t have the time or expertise to achieve the look they want. Do them a favor and offer these low maintenance annuals, perennials and shrubs to guarantee their success.
Finishing plants outdoors when temperatures are just above freezing can help production in many ways. By increasing your production space and moving more mature crops outside, you can increase the spacing on the remaining plants or order in new plants to get more out of every season. Finishing outdoors under cool temperatures also helps acclimate plants to the outdoor environment, making them tougher, more compact, and increases the plants’ survival rates for your customers when they transplant them. The cool temperatures will slow the crops, so plan for that, but the benefits usually outweigh the longer crop times.
