Garden / June 16, 2018 /
All successful gardening endeavors, big or small, start with fertile soil. If you have a large plot, you can get away with having less-fertile soil by planting more and spacing out your crops. In a small space, however, that approach simply does not work. When preparing front yard garden, remember sifting sandy soil through fingers and realizing to improve it. Added lots of organic compost along with a little lime and bone meal, and add more organic matter each year.
Another great thing about container gardening is your ability as the gardener to chase the sun if necessary, as containers can be moved throughout the day. If you have no time to be moving containers whilst life carries on around you, no problem, plant for the amount of sun you have. While it is true that many plants will demand a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun per day there are several shade vegetables that will tolerate or thrive in partial shade and dappled sunlight.
