Think you have to plant your entire garden in one marathon session? Think again! Succession planting (or staggered planting) gives gardeners manageable amounts of tender, fresh produce throughout the growing season while maximizing garden space! 

In this workshop, you will learn:

-Which crops like hot summer weather, and which do better in spring and fall

-What vegetables make the best candidates for succession planting

-How to create a garden plan including succession planting
