Grow Them Geographically

Topic Progress:

Perhaps the most important, yet often forgotten, aspect of quality yield is geography. Planting the right seed in the right soil will lead to the right results. Anything left up to circumstance can easily result in failure. Planting the wrong seeds in the wrong region will leave you with nothing. If you happen to be a fan of experimentation, a trial and error process may suit you just fine.
