To enjoy more of the organic garden and minimize as much as possible the tasks we have to carry out in it, I propose these seven practical tips:
1- Know the land in which you are going to cultivate: know the pH of the soil, its composition, texture, etc. It is essential before we get to work. Based on the results you obtain, you can decide on the crops that best suit you and thus avoid problems such as diseases, pests, bad harvests, etc. in the future
2 – Have fewer plant varieties but in larger quantities: when we start in organic horticulture having many different types of plants and each with its characteristics and care at the beginning can be quite difficult and is more likely to leave if we have more varieties to if we only have 3 or 4 different. In this way we can devote more and better and we can know their cycles and how to maintain them. Once we are comfortable with these three or fourplants, we can add more varieties.
3- Perennial plants, a good option: perennial plants are those that live more than two years and each year bear fruit, such as strawberries or strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, asparagus, artichokes, cauliflower, oregano, thyme, rosemary or sage, and of course, fruit trees.
4- Take advantage of the available space: once you feel more comfortable with the maintenance work and have consolidated your garden, you can take advantage of cultivation methods such as the Hugelkultur, the deep or elevated terraces, or the bio intensive gardens through which we can plant a multitude of plants without having to have large spaces for it. It is an excellent way to expand the horticultural biodiversity of your garden.
5- Skip the first phase: preparing seedlings or seedlings is the ideal, but it is also true that if we are starting it may be better to choose to acquire the seedlings in an ecological nursery or a local seed network, thus saving time and not we have the uncertainty of whether the seeds will germinate or not.
6- Organize the risks: irrigation is a very important factor in the ecological garden, as well as the method by which we water. Watering can take a long time and effort, it is best to install a drip irrigation system, whether you have the garden in pots or if it is directly on the ground. Irrigation systems can be programmed and know how much water you are providing to the plants. This gives you a lot of freedom because this way you forget about this work and you are only checking that the plants are receiving the water they need.
7 – Nourish the soil: in agro ecology insists on providing organic matter and fertilizer to the land (and not the plant) to get strong and healthy plants.
