PLAN YOUR AREA:
to start a vegetable garden plan, plan your area and make the layout on the paper. Drawing a garden map on paper helps us to have a reference to use whenever necessary. This concludes how much space you have, and how many vegetables you can grow in your area.
CARE YOUR SOIL:
Subject your soil for soil test. If your soil test provide evidence that your soil is less in ph then you needed to add amendments to adjust soil ph, spread those amendments over the soil, with the manure, and plow them all in simultaneously at the same time. . If your soil test provide evidence that your soil is essential in ph, but that doesn’t mean you don’t want to add some good organic matter to the soil. It is always essential to add organic matter to improvise the soil fertility.
PLAN THE ROWS:
Planting vegetables in rows are good because crops such as peas, beans, cucumbers and other cereals don’t need anteing. These crops need to be positioned some where they won’t shadow other vegetables. You need not water these plants because these plants raise up and shade the soil creeping weeds and preserves moisture.
RAISE THE BEDS:
Make use of elevated raised beds as the heavy soils don’t drain well and they hang about warmer and drier because they are bounded by air and sun on all sides. Raised beds also help the plants to get more oxygen to plant roots and soil organisms. Root crops such as onions, carrots, beets, rutabagas, turnips, parsnips, beets, turnips and radish are two times as much loose to expand in as beds, therefore the bulbs get larger.
Planting the climbers placing them vertically at the edge and spread them out across paths or grass is called as vertical planting. Melon, squash, bitter guard etc are such type of plants that send out vines that roam around the. These types of plants are needed to be positioned at the rim of your vegetable beds accordingly the broad leaves put together to the vines don’t cover the other plants.
IRRIGATION IF NECESSARY:
Dry conditions don’t support some types of plants and they carry out badly in such conditions. Types of plants like garlic, onions, strawberries etc need or depends on condition of the climate. Part of your garden that is lower to some extent will hold on to more moisture or you can plan to provide irrigation to get consistent growth.
Plants that are needed to use regularly like herbs, salad, tomatoes etc. Should be placed nearer to your kitchen as probable. The plants that you want to harvest regularly can be made out by consulting your kitchen makers. These plants are not to be used more likely but it will also help you to remain on top of the weeds and take away slugs regularly.
