As a gardener, one of the greatest joys of life in our southern climate is the prolonged gardening season. For me, gardening is a year-round activity. But in the colder months from December to February, I work on my garden, more than in my garden.
The most productive and productive vegetable gardens take into account many factors that create this success. This concept is so important for the success of a blooming and blooming vegetable garden that the first two episodes of DIY Network, Fresh From the Garden, a show about vegetable gardens that I host, are entirely devoted to the planning and preparation of your vegetable garden page.
Here are some of the elements that are part of this important list of questions that should be considered when planning or improving your next vegetable garden:
First of all, make sure that your vegetable garden is free from all the crop waste of the previous growth. Dead plants can provide a perfect environment for ailments and pests in winter to spring. This debris can be plowed into the ground and processed, but remove all known ailmentd plants. Eliminate them instead of adding them to your compost pile. Otherwise, ailments can survive and return to your garden beds this spring with the new compost.
Another important consideration for your garden is choosing an ideal location for growing vegetables. First of all, you need as much sun as you can get, and the more, the better. Almost all vegetable crops thrive in full sun, and yields will decrease as the amount of sun your garden receives decreases.
Then your website must be accessible. A healthy and productive garden requires your time and attention. If it is rarely visited, it succumbs to weeds, pests and ailments. It is also very rewarding to have your garden close enough to visually enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Choose a website that runs well. Good drainage is extremely important for the success of your plants. Only a few vegetable crops can tolerate moist soil, and many will pass away. If your site is going badly now, you may be able to improve the existing site by plowing and changing the soil. It may also be possible to change the slope to divert the water. However, my preferred technique to ensure good drainage is to plant your vegetables in raised beds.
Vegetable crops thrive in loose, well-drained soils. The soil must be dense enough to hold moisture, but also loose enough to drain. Raised beds allow you to create this environment above the ground. In order for the plants to flourish, you can fill your beds with the perfect mixture of arable land, organic matter and aged manure.
Then you know what you want to plant and when to plant it! Each type of vegetable has a favorite growing season and if you are not ready to plant in due time, you can prepare for problems and disappointments. Take advantage of these quiet months to study what you want to plant. Then you will find out which varieties grow best in your region and when they will be planted. It’s fun to experiment, but if you are looking for proven results, opt for varieties that have proven proven qualities in your growing region.
An excellent resource for this information is their cooperative popularization service. Many offices have county extension officers and master gardeners on duty to answer all your questions related to gardening. They will send you free publications, and many are engaged in vegetable gardening.
Finally, when planning your garden, you should know where to place the plants in your garden. To do this, you need to know the growing habits of the plants that you are going to grow. Place the tallest plants on the north and west sides of your garden. In this way, you will not give a shadow to the shorter crops. Align the decor of your garden to make the most of the sun’s rays.
