Follow Our Planting Programs for Growing Success

Johnny's Planting Programs are designed to take the guesswork out of succession planting, allowing you to easily extend your harvest throughout the growing season.

What Is a Planting Program?

A planting program is the application of a plan for using various methods to extend the harvest period of a particular crop, to supply the market for a longer period of time than would otherwise be possible.

What Are the 3 Key Elements to Implementing a Successful Program?

  • Planting different varieties depending upon the season.
  • Planting varieties with different days to maturity for extended harvesting.
  • Using season extension tools such as row covers, or growing indoors, to produce earlier crops in the spring and later crops in the fall/early winter.

Why Use a Planting Program?

  • Production periods are key. Some varieties are better suited for warmer months and others for cooler weather. Varieties grown during an inappropriate time slot may fall short of their potential, resulting in a poor-quality or even unmarketable product.
  • Growth rates vary by season. In the warm, long days of late spring/early sumer, plant slower-growing, heat-tolerant varietes. In the cooler, short days of fall, plant faster-growing, cold-tolerant varieties.
