What Does Growing Season Mean?
A growing season is the period of the year during which the temperature, sunlight and rainfall are adequate for regular plant growth. It should be noted that the growing season varies according to different crops and plants. In most cases, growing seasons depend on the plant's genetic adaptation. Some horticulturalists choose to group their plants into different macro-environmental categories during growing season.
Longer growing seasons have been shown to encourage numerous harvests from one single plot of land. Still, lengthier growing seasons may also be disruptive to some kinds of plants since they also encourage the growth of harmful weeds.
