Cultivating a Garden- What you need to know
Early in the making of a garden is a selection of locations. Without options, simply means creating the best framework without conditions. With limited space, it turns into any garden or a box garden. Certainly, a box garden is better than nothing else.
But suppose now that you can really choose the right place for a garden. What should you choose? The biggest factor is the sun. You would not have a north corner unless they are absolutely forced upon you; because, while northern areas work very well for ferns, certain wildflowers, and begonias are of little use as a place in the garden as a whole.
If possible, choose the ideal spot facing south. Here the sun is warm all day. After you've located the garden, lines of vegetables and flowers should run north and south. Thus placed, the plants receive the sun all morning on the eastern side, and all afternoon on the west side. It should not be uneven plants with such an arrangement.
Suppose the garden faces southeast. In this case, the sun's rays will shine all morning on the Eastern side and on the western side during the afternoon periods. In order to get the best distribution of sunlight run the lines or rows northwest and southeast.
The whole idea here rests on the capacity to get the most sunlight as evenly distributed as possible to the created beds for the longest period of time. Uneven growth of plants in the window, which is very easy to see the effect on plants' poorly distributed light.
So if you use a little diagram remembering that you want the sun to shine on a portion of the day on the one hand of plants and part of another, you can juggle every situation out.
South Sunlight Exposure
South exposure gives the ideal case because the sun gives half almost on each part. Northern exposure may mean cutting almost all sunlight; while parts of the Northeast and the Southwest parts always get uneven distribution of sunlight, no matter how carefully it is planned.
The garden, if possible, should be planned on the drawing board. The plan is a great help when it comes to real-time planting. Time is saved and unnecessary purchase of seeds.
New Garden Spots
The new garden spots are likely to be in two conditions: they are covered with either grass or garbage. In the garden soil is plowed and sod turned under, but in small gardens remove the sod. Removing the grass in the best way is another question.
You need to stake and line off your garden spot which is the first things to do in the garden. The line provides a straight and accurate course to follow.
Trim the edges with a spade along the line. If the area is small, say four feet by eighteen or twenty, it's a simple thing. As a narrow portion can be described as a checkerboard, the grass can be cut by the spade and are easily removed. This can be done in two long strips cut along the length of the strip. When the grass is cut, roll it just like a carpet.
But suppose the plot is big. You can divide it up into strips 1 feet wide and remove grass as before. What should be done with the grass? Do not throw away, because it is very rich in plant nutrients, though not as much as usual.
So the packed grass lawn on one area to another. Leave it decay and rotten. When it is well rotted, it is good for manure. A bundle of such decomposition of plant matter is called a compost pile. During the summer, add any old green to it. In the fall put the autumn leaves on.
This will provide you with an awesome lot of goodness for the next season.
Even when the garden is big enough to plough, I would suggest that you choose the biggest pieces of grass rather than allowing them to go under. Go through the ploughed part, select pieces of sod, shake well and pack them into the compost pile.
Some spading and More Raking
Spading the earth itself is not enough. The soil remains in clumps. Always use a spade to break up large pieces. But even so, the ground is not ready for planting.
The soil should be well done for planting because seeds can get very close indeed to those clumps of soil. However, large pieces leave large spaces to which small hair roots can penetrate.
The seed is left stranded in a perfect waste when planted in chunks of soil just baby surrounded by large pieces of steak will die of hunger. The seed among large lumps of soil is in a similar situation. A spade cannot make the process of thrashing the soil to finer particles. But the rake can. This is the value of the rake. It's a big lump breaker, but will not do for large pieces. If the soil still has lumps in it use the hoe.
Many people carry a hoe awkwardly. The main task of this tool is to rid the soil of weeds and stir up the top surface. It is used in summer to form the precious dust cover to retain moisture in the soil. I often see people as if they were reduced to atoms around always.
Hoes should never be such vigorous exercise as that. Spading requires powerful, hard work, but not hoeing and raking. After chunks have been broken down, use a rake to create a fine and smooth bed. Now it's a big part of the job is done.
