Johns Growing Tips

Best Time To Plant?

Different plants need different times to be planted. However for the most part, it has always been said at least to wait until after the May long weekend for Alberta. 


It is a good idea to begin weathering your plants before leaving them outside permanently. Put your plants out through the day, and make sure they are brought in or covered if it freezes at night. 


Cucumbers should be one of the last thing to plant outside, as they are delicate when getting started. 


Happy Planting!
