For some of us, we want to grow flowers but for others, it’s our dream to provide ourselves with our very own, homegrown vegetables. After our previous discussion on all, you need to grow a flower garden. This post is going to be all about all you need for a vegetable garden!
After our experience growing vegetables in our garden, we have discovered it is so much easier to grow them in a greenhouse. We have only invested in a small greenhouse but it has been a lifesaver, and you can already see the difference in our plants.
Research Your Plants
When you are wanting to grow vegetables in your garden, you really need to research them. Some will grow underground and require limited care. Whereas others may need a trellis to climb up and lots of watering and sunlight. Knowing these facts about your crops will help you to provide them with the best location.
A must-have for any vegetable garden is a calendar. This is perfect to help you to know when to plant them in your greenhouse, when to move them outside and when to begin harvesting. With all crops having different timescales, it can get fairly confusing. Having a calendar especially for your plants will help you to stay organised.
Now, this may seem silly, but I can’t tell you how many times we have forgotten what we planted where. With all crops looking fairly similar when they begin growing, it is important to know what is where. By investing in simple peg labels you will know where all your crops are and what stage they are at. Ensuring you do not confuse any of them.
These are 4 things you need to do and should consider having before you start your vegetable garden. Keep yourself organised and growing vegetables will be a breeze.
