Recommendations:

The first 90 days after transplanting are important for flower bud initiation. Putting row covers can make the difference between a good and a terrible season next year. Row covers not only protect the plant, they also can be used to increase growth degree days (GDD) for spring production in short-day varieties.

We will keep you updated on next week.
