Growing food – the organic way

There are numerous delicious fruits and vegetables you can grow at home in the garden, in containers, or in no-dig plots. There are seedlings that are grown in the winter and ones that are grown in  the summer. The seedlings available at nurseries will give you the best indication of what to plant at what time of the year, but don’t be afraid to ask for advice. The key to growing healthy plants is sunlight, and plenty of it! Choose a section of your garden that gets six hours of sun a day. The area will also need to be protected from strong winds and frost. To improve the fertility of your soil, you’ll need to add plenty of natural nutrients, which can be found in organic manures. Also, with regards to watering, bear in mind that if you have lots of trees surrounding your vegetable patch, they’ll be competing for the water.

Garden beds

To reduce the risk of soil-borne pests and diseases, it is important to plant similar plants in the one garden bed, then rotate these beds each year.

A rotation system with four garden beds could include the following:

Bed 1: corn, pumpkins, cucumbers.
Bed 2: peas, beans.
Bed 3: onions, beetroot, carrots.
Bed 4: tomatoes, eggplants, capsicums.

The fruit trees that are best to plant depends on your location, so ask your local nursery which ones would be most suitable for your area. Orange, lemon and lime trees will grow almost anywhere, kiwifruit, apple, cherry and peach trees thrive in cooler weather, while fruit varieties, such as mango, avocado and pawpaw prefer warmer, tropical climates. If you have limited space, you can make the most of it by planting multi-grafted, dwarf and espalier fruit trees. See full post here..
