Gardening Tips for Outdoor Space.
There is nothing quite as enjoyable and satisfying as harvesting fresh veggies from your own edible garden. Growing your own healthy and nutritious food can also be convenient as all of these fresh picks can be found right outside your door in your patio garden. Here some ideas to help you get the most out of your edible garden:
§ A key component of a successful edible garden is good soil. You can make your own organic potting mix that includes garden soil, peat moss, course sand or perlite and fertilizer to provide your plants the right nutrients and drainage.
§ Proper irrigation is important for an abundant harvest. Watering by hand can be relaxing and tranquil, but using an automatic drip line can also be a time and water saving way to properly water your plants.
§ If you are planting a container garden, there are many options to choose from such as clay or ceramic pots, raised bed wood boxes or metal planters, so do a bit research to see what’s best for your specific crops.
§ Space out your planting area to provide your plants with ample room to grow and thrive.
§ Your edible garden should have enough sunlight throughout the day. For the right exposure and close proximity, place your garden right outside your Bi-Fold, lift and slide or multi-slide patio doors that are either South or West facing.
