The Spring season is here and what could be perfect than to plant a vegetable garden this month in time for a summer season harvest. Whether you are a seasoned gardener or just starting out, this time of the year is the perfect time. Nothing tastes better than home-grown tomatoes or fresh lettuce. Here are tips you can follow to ensure a healthy and efficient vegetable garden…
What to Plant in a vegetable garden:
Plant your vegetables such as tomatoes, spinach, cucumber and others either from seed or from starter plants you can buy from home improvement stores. Always make sure that your garden soil have compost especially designed for gardens before planting.
Rotate the Crops:
Vegetable garden planting requires a timely and seasoned approach. For best practices, its good to rotate crops to different locations year after year in order for the nutrients from the soil to remain healthy and to reduce the build up of soil-based diseases and pests that arises. As a result, pests and plant diseases would not have easy access to the plants they’d like to call home.
Plant your Herb Garden:
Herbs like basil, mint, parsley, rosemary and others should all be planted in April in time for a July or August harvest and for most of your other vegetables.
Stay healthy and Happy Gardening!
