Vegetable Succession Planting Chart

Recommended Planting Intervals for Vegetable Crops

This chart provides general guidelines for vegetable crops that are amenable to succession planting. Take note that the timing intervals listed here are based on standard operation growing practices. Season extension and other more evolved growing practices can allow growers to successfully plant and harvest earlier and later than the standard date windows suggested below. Intervals between plantings can also be modified under certain conditions.
