Growing Season is extended...
Grow longer in an enclosed raised bed naturally
- The soil in raised vegetable garden beds typically warms earlier in spring than the surrounding earth. It also tends to dry faster, so you can get cool-season crops planted sooner, allowing for greater choice on what you can plant.
- Enclosures will protect frost sensitive plants from those late spring frosts that can damage or even kill new tender plants.
- Planting early allows roots to get established and grow deeper to so plants require less water when the weather gets hot.
