No Nonsense Vegetable Gardening

When you look up information on vegetable gardening, many sites do not get the point, the raw facts about vegetable gardening. Well, right here, you can read a no nonsense article that gets to the roots of the situation and gives you what you need to know for planting a vegetable garden.

First, you need to select what veggies you want to have in your yard. Sunset Landscaping has a great variety of different vegetable seeds. The next step is preparing the site for your garden.

The seedbed needs to have properly cultivated soil. To do this, sticks, rocks and trash need to be removed and organic matter needs to be added. Organic fertilizer will help keep your soil rich.

When planting the seeds row width varies with the plant but in general, rows 4 inches wide provide enough space for roots to grow. When you are ready to plant, you may not be planting the entire garden at once.

Each vegetable has a particular season that it should be sown. When physically planting the seeds, the planting chart on the back of the seed packet provides specific planting instructions for the particular vegetable it contains.

Once the seeds are planted, watering is very important. Each vegetable requires a specific amount of water. Weeding is also important to protect your vegetables. Another important thing that will give your plants a boost is fertilizer two weeks after planting.

Sunset Landscaping has all your vegetable gardening supplies to fulfill your needs with employees that are eager to help you. Stop by at 23256 Lyons Ave, Santa Clarita CA 91321-2633 for a visit or you can call 661-255-8777 with any questions.
