If you want to crank up your harvest yields and make optimal use of available space and resources, a personal cannabis grow schedule can be very helpful, as you will find out below.

Your Own Annual Cannabis Grow Schedule
When you start to grow your first marijuana seeds, you usually just go with the flow and hope for the best. One harvest a year seems like a fine prospect at that stage. However, once you gain some experience, you will find that working with an annual cannabis grow schedule can dramatically increase your cost-efficiency and harvest turnover. Planning ahead can make your herb gardening life easier, as this blog explains.
The Importance Of Planning Ahead
Cannabis seeds are natural products, and nature has a pretty accurate sense of timing. That makes sense: after all, seeds need the right conditions to germinate, grow, and flower. Out in the wild, these conditions usually occur only once a year as spring passes into summer and the arrival of autumn signals harvest time.
Admittedly, indoor cannabis growing is not a very natural process. We try to simulate natural conditions in grow rooms or tents, using high-tech equipment, knowledge, and timing to mimic optimal growth conditions. Much depends on the space and equipment you have available. Still, having a cannabis grow schedule ready helps you make the best use of whatever means you have at hand.
Planning An Indoor And Outdoor Grow Calendar
Depending on where you live, and on the garden or indoor space you have available, you may want to consider combining indoor and outdoor runs in your cannabis growing schedule. This has the added benefit of potential savings on your electricity bills – sunshine is free after all, which can save you bigtime on light and heat expenses.
You could simply keep running your perpetual harvest indoor schedule while you set up one or two outdoor runs over the spring and summer. That would be a great opportunity to try different genetics in the open air before deciding on a switch indoors.
Another option is to shut down your power-consuming (and therefore costly) in-house operation once the outdoor season starts. If you start up a new batch of seeds in your perpetual harvest setup by the time your backyard crop starts flowering, you can switch back to your indoor cannabis grow schedule when autumn arrives.
The Best Seeds For All Year Growing
Which seeds you choose for your cannabis grow schedule is entirely up to you. You could choose fast-flowering strains to max out on the number of runs you can squeeze into the year. Then again, maybe a slow-growing strain with bigger crop yields will better suit your needs. Don’t forget to consider flavour aspects, resistance to mould, and the type of high or stone associated with your strains.
The best choice is usually a strain that ticks all the boxes you find important. No matter what your taste and individual needs, always order premium quality seeds from a trusted supplier. Working with a year-round cannabis grow schedule is ultimately pointless if you get multiple mouldy harvests, poor germination rates, or a huge stash that just doesn’t give you the full flavour and effects that you seek!
