Growing Facts 

You will find helpful facts for each food to make your garden a success—details for each plant, when, where, and how to plant, to make growing simple.

Time to plant

The best time of year for you to plant your seed, depending on location – the time from the last frost or the average temperature will help you plant on time.

Soil

prepare your soil for the greatest chance to have a successful crop.  Check the soil type and the Ph level for the plant to strive and produce the maximum output.

Depth

The depth that you will plant your seed and transfer to the garden or pot will allow for it to settle and grow to its potential.

Spacing

We, like plants, need space to grow.  If we overcrowd your plants they will compete, so we tell you how far from the other plants the space should be.

Companion plants 

Your garden should be as nature intended it to be, therefore, we recommend companion plants.  Companion plants will help each other by deterring bugs, whilst taking nutrients they need which do not impact the growth of another, making for a friendly garden. 

Sunlight

Some plants like it hot! Some others not-so.  Plants placed in direct sunlight when they like the shade will stimulate growth unnecessarily and it could burn their leaves and make them dry out – making them unfruitful. 

Water

Plants vary in the amount of water they need; overwatering can have adverse effects, our guide will give you the correct watering levels.

Drainage 

The correct drainage will give adequate moisture to the roots, allowing them the water that they need.

Benefits 

Fruits, vegetables, and herbs are essential for our diet and they all offer something different, keeping us healthy and strong.
