Outdoor Cannabis Garden Planning | Dark Heart Nursery

Wednesday, Apr 4, 2018

The outdoor season is already kicking off so it’s time to lay out a solid plan for your outdoor cannabis garden. In California outdoor growing generally runs March through November depending on where your garden is located and if your grow is full sun or light deprivation. Below we have compiled some tips for you to make the most of this year’s harvest.



Cannabis plants go through two cycles in their lifetime, the vegetative cycle and the flowering cycle. In an outdoor grow, the vegetative cycle occurs when there is more sunlight than darkness in a 24 hour day, which is why planting your cannabis plant around mid-May is best. Once you understand the time-frame for starting an outdoor cannabis garden in your area, the next step is to analyze the area where you intend to create your garden.


Before making any decisions on garden layout, survey your property and get a better understanding of a few factors. Walk your yard/property at different times of the day. Figure out where the sun is when it rises, where the sun is hitting your yard at its lowest point, and where the shade is going to be. Become familiar with these lighting conditions. This will allow you to decide the best locations for your plant placement.
