How to Use Grow Lights To Start Your Garden Early
Though certain types of LED grow lights are designed to encourage flowering and fruit development, Tower Garden’s Grow Lights are best for growing leafy greens and herbs. (And at this time, Tower Garden has no plans to offer full spectrum lights for fruiting crops – mostly because growing fruiting crops indoors is a challenge, regardless of which lights you use.)
That means if you grow crops such as tomatoes, peppers, or squash, for example, indoors you’ll get lots of lush green foliage, but few flowers and in many cases no fruit. This is because there are no bees inside to pollinate the flower buds. You can pollinate by hand. Tap here to learn how.
However if you live somewhere with a short growing season, such as Canada, or if you simply want to to maximize your yields this spring and summer.
Well, if you start your warm season crops indoors during the late winter, you’ll have robust, well-established plants by April or May. So when you move them outside (after hardening them off), or acclimating them to the outdoors conditions), you’ll enjoy harvests much earlier than if you had waited until spring to germinate seeds – thereby increasing your yields overall. (Tap Here to learn how to hardening off seedlings.)
Of course, you could also just stick to leafy greens and herbs, which grow wonderfully indoors year-round with LED’s. It is up to you!
