Tips For Planting a Container Garden
When filling in the container, compost soil is placed at a height of two to four inches. If you are planting sprouts, then you should give them a few inches of space around the roots. However, scattering the seeds evenly across the platter will do the job if you are planting seeds. One suggestion to be more practical with growing herbs is to keep two or three containers of each plant going at once so that when you've clipped one plant, you have another one ready for your next meal.
If you are considering grouping various plants in one container, remember that the plants have the same needs on the amount of water. Therefore, they must be planted in such a way that their roots are not on the same levels and that those that should be driest are closest to the surface.
From here, you may pat yourself on the back. You now know the basics of starting with your container garden! How exciting could it be to do the things needed to maintain them? You know it does not end with scattering the seeds, or implanted sprouts. You still have some remaining things to do to witness the amazing development of your plants, and to eventually harvest what is yours!.
Consistently water your plants regularly. Damp soil is what herbs should be grown from. Frying them out will render them unhealthy. Your intake of anything unhealthy can also yield to unhealthy results on your body. Tomatoes, however, are easy to over-water. So before watering them, you should check the soil. If the soil is moist, then wait till the moment when it becomes dry and only then water. It is best to water around the base of the plant, rather than through the leaves.
When it is time to harvest from your plants, you would want to use the apt scissors to snip the leaves or vegetables. In order for you to do this, clip the leaves around the base of the plant first, so that it will continue to grow and fill out. You may now enjoy the freshest herbs you could ever get, and that is straight from your very own container garden. Rewarding as it sounds, it would feel better in reality.
