Garden microclimates

Naturally occurring microclimates within your garden can provide special considerations for plants needing more heat, less heat, warmer soil, or other factors. Making use of these micro climates can help you to maximize your garden’s productivity, and extend your garden’s productive life both earlier and later in the season.

Whether you make use of naturally occurring features in your garden, such as walls, large stones, or shade trees, or you create your own “microclimates” with the use of protective covering, shade cloths, or raised beds, utilizing these warmer or cooler zones to get the most from your garden plants can make a big difference in the productivity of your garden.

If you want to give your plants an earlier start this spring (or extend their lives later into the fall), this quick video shares some simple tips for making use of microclimates to maximize the productivity of your garden.

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
