Shedding some light on the latest in grow lights

Gardening Under Lights by Leslie F. Halleck

I have long wished I could find horticultural lighting that didn't cost a fortune to operate and periodically revisit the topic of LED lights to learn what is new. Has their day arrived?

LED grow lights, it turns out, are good for leafy greens, herbs, and young seedlings. But don't expect to get an indoor tomato crop. 

I was glad to learn these points from Gardening Under Lights, by Leslie F. Halleck. (Published by Timber Press, 2018.) I interviewed Halleck and she provided an encouraging look at the innovations in lighting. 

“Lighting technology is evolving at light speed, and there are many different levels of advancement,” she says.
