Sharing Grandpas Gardening Tips Will Make Master Gardeners Of Us All
City gardening with grandpas gardening tips can be very rewarding both physically and emotionally.
Nothing brings more satisfaction than growing your own fruits and vegetables and knowing that they will be healthful, chemical free, and pesticide free.
It all starts with good planning. Make your garden plan according to your own and your family preferences both with fruit and nuts as well as vegetables. Plan for easy access with easy to reach and pick as well as not needing to step on those double dug beds. Another important consideration is the best use of sunlight and natural windbreaks. For instance;
always plant the tallest plants on the northern side of your garden
try to a find good companion for your plants
place a couple packs of book matches in the hole when planting peppers
a tablespoon of Epson salts in a gallon of water per plant will supply magnesium
sprinkle diatomaceous earth around plants to add calcium and control crawling insects in your garden especially slugs
