Succession planting, also known as successive planting, is a way to extend your harvest by staggering plantings of crops or planting varieties with staggered maturing dates. There are four methods of succession planting.

Tips for Successful Succession Planting

  • Make sure you have enough seed to get you through the season and into fall if you plan to over-winter vegetables in hoop houses. Some seed lasts several years; others need to be fresh for good germination.
  • Add some compost or leaf mold to the beds, between plantings, to keep the soil rich.
  • Don't hesitate to pull out vegetables past their prime. Use them while they are at their best and then use the space for something else.
