🌱Replace Spent Plants
Intense summer heat encourages many plants to go to seed, a process also known as bolting. This is the process of plants entering the flowering stage in order to produce more seed. While this looks a little different depending on the plant, most send up shoots from which flowers blossom.
After this happens, many vegetables and herbs become bitter and less desirable for eating, which signals it’s time to remove and replace the crop. You can remove a plant that has gone to seed by simply pulling it out along with its net pot. You can then insert a new seedling in its place.
Tower Tip: Tomatoes, peppers, and other fruits absorb lots of water and nutrients. You can reduce stress on your fruiting crops by harvesting them frequently.
