Succession Planting

Some crops are harvested early, like peas and salad greens, which means you might have empty spaces in your garden mid-season.

What now? You can re-plant in that spot for a second harvest!

Beans are quick to mature and are an ideal choice. You can also put in cold weather and frost tolerant plants like cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower, as well as kale, which you’ll be able to harvest into October.

This is called succession planting and is a great way to take advantage of Hamilton’s long growing season to increase the yield from a small plot of land.

A presenter from the 2014 Seedy Saturday shared her succession planting notes.
