How does your garden usually grow? If you could use some tips for getting your garden growing this season, we have some to share with you. Here are some of the things to think about, from Taylor Morrison to you.
Sort Out Your Seeds
For the best chance of high germination rates, make sure your seeds are new and not expired. If you have older packets of seeds, you can test their viability; you’ll need damp paper towels and baggies. When buying new seeds, keep in mind what grows best in the spring. Many gardeners enjoy the ease of buying seeds online.
Prep the Soil
Is the soil ready? Wait to plant until the soil is no longer saturated from rain or snow melt. This usually isn’t an issue if you have a home in Yorba Linda, CA, but owners of Orlando area homes might need to wait for any springtime storms to subside. This organic gardening blog explains how to determine if your soil is ready. When conditions are dry, you can begin to cultivate the soil.
Start Your Seeds
Some seasoned gardeners swear by starting seeds indoors with grow lights. In fact, if you live in a townhouse in Campbell, CA or elsewhere, you can take advantage of new technologies like Intelligent Light Source to grow an indoor produce garden. If your garden is large or you need to grow outside, it’s wise to protect your plants with a metal hoop cover or frame.
