PLANTING THE SEEDS

The most basic thing for starting a garden. Prepare the seeds indoor so as to get an early bloom. Seeds can be prepared using the same conditions as used outside. Use sterile soil otherwise the seeds may develop a fungus known as Damping-off Disease which is caused because of fungi present in the soil. Make efficient use of artificial or natural light to germinate the seeds otherwise the seedlings may become spindly. Artificial lights may have to be used up to 14 hours a day. Keep the medium for e.g. sponge moist rather than soggy. Too much water may kill the seeds. Plant them outside only when they are fit for transplanting generally four to six weeks after germination.

Organic gardening is revolutionizing the way we do our gardening keeping in mind the environment around us. It involves doing away with harmful chemicals and pesticides and using natural products to grow our fruits and vegetables. The natural way of increasing the fertility of the soil is through the use of decayed plant and animal matters and manures. Organic gardening involves duplicating these nutrients by recycling them back into the soil. Organically cured soil is rich in microscopic life which benefits the plants. Artificial fertilizers and pesticides disrupt the nature’s balance. It is even costlier compared to organic gardening. In other way it can be said that organic gardening involves respecting our flora and fauna. The various techniques of organic gardening are No Dig Gardening and Companion Planting.
