Seedsman’s 5 Best Outdoor Strains to Grow in 2018

Spring is upon us and that is the best time of the year to start those outdoor strains. Growing from seed to harvest can be a 6 month commitment, which is why selecting the best strain to grow outdoors is essential. Below are the 5 best Seedsman strain to consider growing outdoors this summer.

Northern Soul Feminised

Genetics: Skunk # 1 x Northern Lights

Flowering Time: 9-10 Weeks

Harvest Month: Mid October

Buy Northern Soul from Seedsman now!

The parent behind this super reliable hybrid makes this one of the best outdoor strains, especially if you live in Northern Europe, the Northern States of America and Canada. The traits of the short flowering resilient Skunk #1 and the notoriously tough Northern Lights make Northern Soul highly resistant to mould and mildew, as well as delivering big yields of potent buds. This hybrid will grow a medium sized height and will display characteristics of an Indica dominant plant, however there is a longer flowering time of up to 70 days, making this perfect for beginners and expert growers alike. The effects when smoked are a powerful high that is combined with an early citrus taste.

Mazari Feminised

Genetics: Mazari Sharif x Skunk # 1

Flowering Time: 8-9 Weeks

Harvest Month: Early November

Buy Mazari from Seedsman now!

This land race has been crossed with the early flowering Skunk #1 to bring forward the short stocky stature of the Mazari Afghani genetic and the large harvests that both outdoor strains possess. Mazari is a small yet reliable plant, that is very well suited in a sea of green set up. This hybrid will grow multiple side branches which will harvest earthy, fruity aromatic flowers. Be warned, they do have a pungent edge to them as Mazari starts to flower. The effects when smoking Mazari are uplifting and creative, with an earthy, cherry aroma and taste.

Early Skunk Feminised

Genetics: Early Pearl x Skunk # 1

Flowering Time: 7-8 Weeks

Harvest Month: Mid September

Buy Early Skunk from Seedsman now!

This is one of the earliest flowering outdoor strains we offer and as the name suggests, this hybrid is an early one. The genetics are a mix of Early Pearl which was well known for the ability to consistently perform during Dutch seasons, with the sturdy and always reliable Skunk #1.  If you are facing cold harsh weather then Early Skunk is a perfect choice as she is resilient to the mould and cold. Despite the early maturation time, Early Skunk will produce very generous harvests of sweet floral buds. The effect is similar to Skunk so expect a creative and social high which is ideal for smokers with a low tolerance and those who want something to smoke throughout the day. With a flowering time of around 52 days, Early Skunk certainly ticks all the boxes when it comes to outdoor strains.

Nemesis Feminised

Genetics: Northern Indian x Nepali

Flowering Time: 7-9 Weeks

Harvest Month: End Of September

Buy Nemesis Seeds from Seedsman now!

If you are looking for the best of an indica and sativa, look no further than Nemesis. The genetics in this outdoor strain is a North Indian landrace crossed with a Nepali. As this strain originates in hotter parts of the world, it will perform very well outdoors if well treated. Depending on which pheno you find, some plants will finish in 50 days whilst others can take a little longer at 63 days. The structure of Nemesis grows vigorously and can become a difficult task for beginner growers, making this a selection for intermediate or expert growers. The flowers will grow large and stack with plenty of resin, with a musky pungent fruity stench as they grow tall.

Mamma Mia Feminised

Genetics: Early Skunk x Mazari Sharif

Flowering Time: 8 Weeks

Harvest Month: End Of September

Buy Mama Mia Seeds from Seedsman now!

Mamma Mia is another one of our shorter flowering outdoor strains, as it is a cross of Mazari and Early Skunk. As a way to add more resilience to the wet and cold climates, the flowering time of the Mazari was reduced to just 64 days with a similar growth pattern, yet you can expect even shorter plants. Mamma Mia is an excellent strain for any growers who do not have a lot of height and can afford a large sea of green bumper crop. The flowers will grow small and dense with a citrus, earthy aroma and taste. This strain is super easy to grow so is highly recommended for beginner growers who enjoy smoking high-energy day time cannabis.
