Feasterville, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2019 -- As the go-to garden store for residents across Bucks County, Leck's Greenhouses understands the importance of thoroughly planning and preparing a garden before planting, from selecting the right plants for the space to getting the soil ready for planting and everything in between. Now, the company is offering tips on how to begin this process and which factors are most important when planning a garden.
Before diving into any garden project, it's essential to consider how much space can be committed to it, and how much time can be devoted to mulch, weeding, irrigating, and other tasks. Additionally, it's best to choose crops and plants that will thrive in the particular climate and conditions where they will be planted. Planning to rotate the crops is another critical step that helps to ensure soil fertility and boost crop yields.
Carefully selecting the spot where a garden will go is also crucial to the planning stages and to create success as the growing season progresses. Ideally, this space will be near a convenient water source that allows for easily irrigating the plants. This also helps maintain optimum moisture levels in the soil, which is key for new transplants and seeds.
Properly preparing the soil before planting can make a significant difference in growth rates and yield. Not only is quality soil a must, but it's advised to make sure it is well-drained, rich in nutrients, and loose. Additionally, the soil's fertility should be enhanced by adding compost or other organic matter to it. All this helps to increase production and keep the soil at its healthiest throughout the season.
