Vegetables pre-planting

 

Due to the short length of our growing season many vegetables are available as bedding-out plants.

soil preparation

Spade or rototill the garden soil deeply to break the soil into small clods. Add 454g. (1 lb.) of granular all-purpose fertilizer per 30sq. m. (37.5 sq. yd.) and turn the soil again. Rake the soil smooth and your garden is ready for planting. Improve the texture of heavy, clay-loam soils with additions of peat moss, compost, vermiculite, perlite, or sand. Do not work garden soil when it is wet.

pre-planting care

Due to the short length of our growing season many vegetables are available as bedding-out plants. Vegetable bedding-out plants that cannot be planted the same day they are purchased should be watered and stored in a shady location to prevent excessive wilting.
