Outdoor High-Yield Growing, Part Two

Imagine your plants here! Imagine your plants here!

In the previous outdoor growing article in this series, we talked about site security and plant security. You found out how to use security cameras, fences, predator repellent, sprays, foggers and other tactics so you protect your valuable outdoor plants.

In this article, we’ll talk about ways to feed, strengthen and protect your plants so they have a better chance of giving you the eye-popping outdoor harvest you so richly deserve.

The first thing to do is take advantage of 21st century hydroponics technology. Scientists have created Vitamin B formulas that armor your plants against stress, especially heat and light stress. These are a must-have in your outdoor garden.

Another hydroponics innovation gives you silica that transfers into your plants’ cellular structure to make them more resistant to heat, drought, intense light, pests and diseases.

You can also use a formula called Bud Factor X that stimulates your plants’ immune systems so they resist diseases and stress. You get an added benefit because BFX also increases the size and potency of your harvest.

Before you start your outdoor garden, network with other growers and do online research to find the specific strains that are most likely to grow outdoors where you are.

You’ll see warnings that some strains are susceptible to grey mold, powdery mildew or other problems, and some strains that are resistant to such problems.  Figure out the climate and disease conditions in your outdoor grow area, and select the most appropriate and hardy strains for that area. This includes climate and seasonal parameters.

Although you might not be visiting your outdoor grow site very often, whenever you do, be sure to inspect your crops using a magnifying glass. Look inside the flowers and on the undersides of leaves for insects and disease.

Also look around your site for scat, animal pathways, parts of leaves or plants eaten, cigarette butts, human footprints and any other clue that something is hurting your crop. Remember to check, clean, and battery-refresh your garden surveillance cameras, and look at what they’re recording.

In our previous outdoor article we talked about Heavy Harvest outdoor fertilizers, and I got a few questions wanting to know more about them. Heavy Harvest is a time-release granular that comes in three configurations: spring, summer and autumn.

As you’d expect, each formulation is designed to feed the specific nutrients and ratios that work best in that particular season. Beyond that, the other great benefit of Heavy Harvest is that the granular time-release mechanism is so well engineered that it gives your crops timed, controlled-dose feeding over the course of each season.

The most successful outdoor growers mix Heavy Harvest into the soil at the start of each season and then they only have to come back at the start of the next season to apply that season’s formula. This is a super-convenient way to feed outdoor crops, especially if they’re far away or hard to get to.

Remote outdoor growing often requires some hard hiking, climbing, irrigating and other backbreaking work, but if you’ve seen outdoor plants that are ten feet high and four feet in diameter, you know it’s all worth it.
