Vegetable Planting Guide

General Planting Guide

1. Pick a sunny spot for your veggies. While some of your veggies can take a little bit of shade, like your greens, it is important to give them the most sun your planting area can provide. More sun= more flowers= more fruit for you to enjoy!

2. Provide good drainage. Make sure that whatever container or plot you grow your veggies in, that the soil will drain properly. While you do want to provide your plants with plenty of water, no plants want to be waterlogged and more moisture can create more disease in your plants!

3. Amend your soil! It always helps to add some nutrients, like a good compost, to your soil especially if you are planting in Georgia soil or choose a good organic potting soil for containers. Breaking up the soil in general will help with the root production of your veggies.

4. Give your plants some space. Make sure to take a look at our spacing suggestions for each plant in our product descriptions. This allows for the plants to grow with enough space and airflow to help reduce disease and rot!

5. Mulching is great! This is especially beneficial during the hottest and coldest months of the year. Mulching helps keep moisture in the ground that would quickly evaporate in the heat of the Summer and helps protect the roots from freezing during the cold days and nights of Fall and Winter. Wheat straw is a great organic material for mulching!
