Choose the seed that best suits your needs.

Depending on the type of plants you’re going to have in your home garden, you must choose a type of seed, tuber or seedling. To plant your seeds and grow plants successfully, use a natural fertilizer or manure, added to a suitable substrate. This gives your seeds, tubers, or seedlings a better chance for germination and growth.

A garden on your own terrace

Urban gardens are a fashionable thing these days. This trend comes from the US and is gradually spreading to all over the world. It’s most common manifestation is to plant vegetables and plants on your own terrace, balcony, patio, or stoop. What do you do when you do not have enough space?

The perfect time to plant seeds is early spring and your crops will be ready for harvest through summer and fall. Some flowers will bloom in the following spring. Ideally, plant in a sandy soil with good drainage, where plants will receive enough sunlight. Place seeds at a distance of 10 centimeters from each other at a depth of between 7 and 15 centimeters with the top up. An important detail is that if the soil does not have enough organic matter plants will struggle, you should add some organic fertilizers and compost if your soil is lacking in organic matter.

As for plant care it is quite simple. You have to water the plant regularly, but if you notice that the soil is wet do not water too much and also no need to spray water to the leaves or flowers because plants  don’t like to be water logged. For perennial flowers, once the flower has wilted, cut the main stem but not the leaves, thus the bulb will be strengthened for future use, and when the leaves dry also be time to dig the bulbs and store up this fall to plant again.

Keep the temperature and humidity constant.

Use a water sprayer to keep the temperature and humidity at bearable levels. When the plants have germinated, transplant to a substrate surface.
