You can then earlier in a GrowCamp than you are used to. When the tent is covered with plastic, light night frost is kept out and the plants are not damaged.
Often it will be possible to start already in February. The sun's rays quickly heat up the bed and raise the soil temperature significantly.
At the other end of the season, there is also a lot to pick up. If you put potatoes in July, you can dig up new potatoes in October-November. Carrots sown in August can be eaten from November until spring.
Time of sowing and harvesting can vary from year to year due to changing weather conditions. Of course, geographical climate differences are also crucial. In addition, there are many varieties of most plant species, each of which has different characteristics in relation to development, sowing and harvesting time.
The information in the form is based on the seed suppliers' instructions with their own experience from several years of cultivation under the special conditions in a drift tent. As a general rule, you can sow / plant approx. a month before in a drift tent than in the open air. This is due to higher soil temperature and the fact that the soil in a raised bed dries faster, so it is workable. In the fall, there is also about an extra month to sow and harvest.
For many crops, plastic cover is not strictly necessary in autumn and winter, although this is indicated in the table.
However, it will almost always be an advantage for the plants to get the extra protection and warmth that the cover provides.
We have prepared a form, which shows general guidelines for what you, among other things. can grow in your GrowCamp, when it can be sown or planted, and when it can be harvested.
