Virtual Workshop: Garden Succession Planning

Succession planting is a food growing technique you can apply to any growing space (pot or plot) to make maximum use of your garden soil and also of the length of the Ottawa growing season. The presentation will answer the question “why plan garden successions”, as well as provide practical advice on what food plants to grow, impractical choices, and other planning information needed to schedule your successions.
