It’s time to start planting your gardens. Whether you’re growing out on the patio or in the backyard, here are three gardening tips that will make your Kansas City urban vegetable garden a growing success everyone in the neighborhood will be talking about.
- Make sure your plants have enough sunlight, soil, and water. You’ll want to make sure that they have just enough, but not too much of each. Your windows, patios, and doorways should be unobstructed so that the sun and rain can reach the plants with ease. We can assist with proper soil and watering techniques at our Garden Center. Fox Farm is our choice for soil and fertilizers. We also carry Happy Frog and Ocean Forrest blends. Both are rich in organic materials and great for vegetables.
- Be careful what you plant. Be sure to plant vegetables that grow best within our region and climate. Otherwise, you will end up with a garden that hasn’t lived up to its full growing potential. Tomatoes, squash, corn, and chili peppers thrive in our unpredictable yet hot and humid climate.
- Don’t forget the compost. If you are using raised beds or containers, good, organic compost or potting soil with composted amendments is essential for keeping your plants healthy and happy. We have a variety of organic fertilizers and root enhancers that are safe and clean for growing vegetables.
