If you own a garden, you might agree that the climate usually controls what you plant and when. While this sentiment might be shared by many, many garden owners are usually caught unprepared. They therefore end up planting and getting little or no yields at all. If you have found yourself in such situations, then follow these tips and see your yields increase the next planting season.
The main key to getting great yields is planning ahead. If you do so, the beginning of the planting season will find you ready and you will get full benefits from Mother Nature.
First, take care of the soil you are going to plant in. never wait for the planting season to begin so as to till the land. The main advantage of tilling before is that the soil will be aerated. This will accelerate in the breakdown of organic material to compost, which is good for your plants. It will also help to free the soil of some disease causing organisms. In addition to tilling the soil, you might want to check the soil pH. This refers to the acidity or alkalinity of the soil which mostly affects the amount of nutrients it has. This will help you determine what nutrients you might need to add to the soil for healthy growth of your plants.
Second, decide on which plants you will grow during the coming season. It is important to know which plants will do well during a particular season especially if you are growing them outside. A good example is that of plants that need to be grown in a nursery but the outside conditions cannot allow for this for a month or so. Rather than wait for the weather outside to become favorable, you can have the nursery indoors and transplant your seedlings as soon as the weather becomes favorable.
Third, you will have to keep all the planting accessories ready. These accessories include tools, fertilizers, and pesticides among others. Having your planting accessories ready will help you save time during your planting and ensure that your plants get what they need in time. As a result you will be able to get more yields.
The planting season is one of the most important times in the year for any garden owner. It will determine how much yield he or she will have. It is therefore important to plan ahead to ensure that you plant on time and take advantage of the whole planting season.
