How often should I water?
The number of times you water your garden all depends on factors such as:
Where you currently live with the garden
Time of the year
Amount of rainfall you receive
Type of soil you are using and have
Where the plants are currently located in your garden
If your plants are in containers or in the ground soil
Soil dries out faster during the hot and dry months then it would during the winter and colder times. Certain plants also need more water then others which will determine how much you need to water everyday. Read labels and information regarding the plants and seeds you purchase in order to know and understand the consumption levels of water the plants need. Sticking your finger in the soil 1 inch deep will help you tell whether the soil is dry or moist. If moist, wait until the soil is dry because overwatering could damage the plants and seeds. If the soil is dry, water deeply.
What's the difference between compost and mulch?
Organic Soil Amendment
Most of the time mixed into soil
Adds nutrients to soil and helps improve soil structure
Organic and Inorganic materials
Used to spread on top of soil
Helps reduce weed growth
Moderate soil temperature
Improve moisture retention
Ex: Wood chips, gravel, straw, and pine needles
How often should I fertilize my plants?
It all depends on what you're fertilizing and what type of fertilizer you are going to be using for your plants.
Fertilize once during the spring season
2-3 times a calendar year
Every 3-4 weeks
Every 4-6 weeks
Each plant type has a type of fertilizer and certain scheduling for what is best for that specific plant when fertilizing. Plants will die if you over fertilize and increasing the nitrogen levels in soil will give too much for the plants to handle or take in.
