Vegetables and Herbs: Edible Gardens

Vegetable Gardening

Creating your own vegetable garden may sound more difficult than it is. Similar to beginning any garden, the first key step is choosing the right soil. Adding composts provides more essential nutrients, but may take a long amount of time to breakdown. Other options include adding composted manure from a garden store to speed up the process.

An ideal fertilizer will prove an equal balance of nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous. Once your soil is ready, it is time to prepare your ground and plant your seeds. Be sure to pay attention to aspects such as exposure to sunlight and spacing of the seeds.
