I am sure we, as gardeners, want to have a garden that will not only produce a tremendous harvest of fresh vegetables but also produce them continuously. It is our hard work so we need to learn how to do it properly. Thus, in this article, I will show you which are the best tips and tricks to use for a continuously productive vegetable garden.
The best tips and tricks for productive vegetable garden crops
The safest way to increase the harvested amount is to reduce plants’ space. The idea is to plant-wide strips and thus reduce the space given to each plant. To start a garden grown in this way, dig these bands on the desired length but do not exceed 90 – 120 cm in width.
Even if it is not necessary, good delineation of areas is especially helpful when you have high beds. Their closure between the planks will not only make the garden look more orderly but will prevent the earth from slipping on the edges. It will be easier to install vertical growth supports. All you need is a rope, small sticks, a tool to make holes in the ground, seedlings and water.
Step 1. Instructions. Before planting, dig the soil up to 25-30 cm depth, stirring it well to air. Mix the organic and granular fertilizer with a slower action. Draw the lines stretching out the rope cuts. These lines will help you plant the vegetables at the correct distance from one another.
Step 2. If you plant the seedlings, use a stick or a special tool to make the holes. Carefully remove the plant from the container. Place the plant in the hole at the same depth as the pot. Press the ground around the stem above the roots. If you plant seeds, make small holes on the ground with your fingers. Ensure that you follow the instructions on the packaging exactly as to the depth of planting.
Step 3. Water well. For seedlings, spray easily using a hose or sprinkler. For seeds, use the easiest setting at the end of the hose to avoid disturbing the soil. Many varied structures are a good support for peas, pickle beans, melons, cucumbers, and tomatoes.
The best tips and tricks for productive vegetable garden vertical crops
Hanging plants are grown on rope, fence or other wood or metal racks. Through vertical growth, the amount produced per m² also increases. Such crops grown above the soil are healthier because the chances of contacting any fungus or bacteria affecting the leaves on the ground are lower.
The most suitable vegetables for a productive vegetable garden vertical gardens
Choose variants with indefinite growth to grow and produce continuously over a longer period of time – until the first freeze. The tomatoes can be grown on wire or rope holders, or they can be supported with 2.1 m tall wood tops and ground up to 60 cm. Tomatoes grown on wire or string, need less care but are more vulnerable to fungal diseases. Those raised on poles will be advantageous if they have only one strain. To keep this singular strain, break the new twigs on the main stem.
Even though the growth period is longer than the bush pea, the peat produce more and longer. Try to make them climb on a high-grade wood or other bamboo support.
Hanging varieties do well beside a fence or wire stand to rope. Those vertically bred tend to be more straight and more uniform than those lying on the ground.
This variety with sweet and edible paste is among the most productive spring vegetables. By choosing high varieties, you can grow on supports of 1.5-1.8 m tall. Collect the pasta carefully to avoid breaking the fragile plant.
These prolonged crops need a very strong support if you choose to grow them vertically. Large varieties need canvas supports to support the fruit. It is also necessary to tie the support plant with pieces of soft canvas. Avoid string or wire because they can cut the stem.
Successive and mixed planting
These two techniques will increase the production of your garden and may prolong the harvesting season for certain vegetables. Successive planting means replacing the harvested crop with a new crop, or planting a single crop on small pieces for a longer period of time.
Mixed planting means planting a variety of fast-growing vegetables in the spaces left between slowly growing vegetables or a higher variety of the shorter vegetables.
