Garden near outdoor yard light

Asked June 12, 2019, 3:39 PM EDT

Is an outdoor yard light a problem for a garden, meaning this is on at night and the garden has no complete darkness?

Generally, the light given off by most street lights and outdoor yard lights is not intense enough to alter plant growth. So, it probably is not anything to worry about.

Here is a good article on the subject: https://hortnews.extension.iastate.edu/1993/2-10-1993/wrong.html

Thanks for the question.
