GROWING CLIMATES WILL MY PLANT TOLERATE FROST? IS IT BEST TO GROW MY PLANTS IN HOT WEATHER OR COLD WEATHER?
Well most plants will grow in warm weather and cool weather
but will it take hot or cold weather; is it frost tolerant? Plants mostly will like part shade,
Wel,l I hope you read my instructable to find out more.
WATERING, HOW MUCH WATER TO GIVE? WHERE TO WATER?
Watering is a biggie cause if your plant
gets too much water it may cause your vegteables to split, example:
carrots or onions can split if they are given too much water.
Lack of water can result in weaker stalks, plants don't grow and die.
Watering under leaves is better becuse it helps not to spread diseases. So yes,
water is a big biggie! You definitey want to know how much water to give your plants.
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN TO PLANT? OR HOW DEEP TO PLANT SPACING YOUR PLANTS?
Yes, it is a good to know how to plant your plants cause you can plant
too deep which will cause your seedling to take longer
for the plant to emerge which means a shorter harvest time.
Spacing is good question to ask cause plants need their space and the
plants that need to be fertilized do not like to share their space, cause they are heavy feeders
and they need all the nutrition they can get to produce better fruit.
Or vines like cucumbers, watermelon, squash ......... it's best to space them evenly because
you don't want the vines to cross into each others territory.
Yes, some vines can be grown on the ground,
or to save more garden space cucumbers can be grown like a vine on a fence or wire.
Some plants may need to be planted on mounds like watermelons, cantelope...........
I hope this encourages you to know more on how to plant your plants and spacing.
SOIL: HOW MUCH MANURE SHOULD I PUT IN MY GARDEN BED? OR IS MY SOIL THE RIGHT TYPE FOR MY VEGTEABLES?
Now the worst soil to have is heavy clay soil. Or manure,
chicken manure must be well rotten cause its so high nutritions that it will burn your plants.
and some plants its best to have the soil prepared weeks before planting.
Now all topsoil bags should have numbers on them that are like this
21-15-10 the first number stands for the percentage of nitrogen
which gives the plant color and stimulates foliage growth.
The second number is the percentage of phosphorous .
Phosphorous helps give an abundance of flowers and fruit
and at last the third number is the percentage of potash
which helps make stronger roots.
Is my garden soil the right type for my plants
well many different plants like different soil. Carrots like sandy soil
or onions like clay soil but plants that grow the food under ground like really loose soil
and most of the plants in the world like well drained soil.
DO MY PLANTS NEED FERTILIZING? HOW OFTEN DO MY PLANTS NEED TO BE FERTILIZE?
Most plants are heavy feeders and need to be fertilized every two weeks.
There are little feeders and they just need to fertilize only once in there entire growing season
or some plants do not need to be fertilize at all. Some plants use liquid fertilizer.
Now I hope I have pursuaded you to dig deeper and find out more on how to grow vegetables
good luck on growing and I hope you have fun.
Step 1: Broccoli, Soil,Growing Climate,Watering,Planting
purplish, white & green in color and it also has tiny yellow flowers. the edible parts are the broccoli heads
and the leaflets,stalks.
Broccoli likes well drained soil in full sun.
Soil type, broccoli prefers soil with a pH 6.0 to 7.0
prepare your garden bed with rotten manure or compost .
If soil is sandy add extra nitrogen supplement to your garden soil in
3 to 4 months you can harvest your broccoli.
Growing broccoli can be succesful in most climates but not extreme
hot weather or extreme cold weather although it's best to
plant it in cool climates and yes it is frost tolerant.
Sow your broccoli seeds in soil 1/2 deep 3" apart, during late spring.
If you want to plant your seeds earlier plant them indoors in a small pot
a month before transplanting.
Broccoli watering, water your broccoli every day
keep your soil lightly moist by water frequently. as broccoli heads mature cut down on watering.
If you don't provide enough water for your broccoli plants during the growing season
your broccoli plants will go to seed with out forming heads.
Liquid fertilize your broccoli plants every 2 weeks
when the broccoli heads appear. You can make your own liquid fertilizer at
