Description

DescriptionDo you want to learn how to everything you need to know to start gardening? If yes, then keep reading... Traditional gardeners have been making use of raised beds to grow their vegetables for many years. They would double dig the beds, creating circular or rectangular mounds a foot or so high with the sloping edges on the sides of the beds. This is especially effective in areas that receive lots of rain since it guarantees good drainage. Additionally, it allows a bit more space to grow your veggies. Companion planting works perfectly on raised beds. Those vegetables which need more space for their roots like carrots would be planted on top while others like leeks and onions would fill up the space on the sides of your beds. The latter repels pests and would act as a shield for the carrot plants on the top of the bed. These are but a few of the numerous benefits of gardening in raised beds. Therefore, it is not surprising to find that our modern-day gardeners are turning their attention with more frequency to this method. They have added a twist though, now solid frames replace these sloping sides to give the raised beds a distinct and well-defined structure. What this means is that you can make the beds as high or tall as you want them to be without the danger of soil runoff when it rains. This book covers the following topics Why You Should Use Raised Beds Raised Beds Tips And Tricks Planning Your Raised Bed Garden The Basics Of Building Your Raise Beds Plants That Work Well In Raised Garden Beds Combinations For Companion Planting Raised Bed Garden Ideas Soil Weed Control In Raised Beds Pest Control In Raised Beds Managing Growth Of Plants Advantages And Disadvantages Of Using Raised Beds Irrigation ...And much more One of the most popular styles of gardening today is raised gardening. Why is this type of gardening so popular? Why do people prefer it to regular gardening or container gardening, which is relatively simpler to set up and easier to maintain? Why are so many eBooks on raised bed gardening becoming bestsellers overnight? There are many, many advantages that one can enjoy with this type of gardening. Raised gardens make it easy to adapt the square foot gardening method. Square foot gardening is when you divide the garden into one square foot plot. You do not need much digging once the garden is set up for the earth is compact and well aired. The raised bed can be made into any shape - as per your desire and/or need. You can have different types of soil for different beds. For example, you can have rich soil for pumpkins, sandy soil for carrots, and so on. You can also easily rotate your plants/ flowers in any way that suits you. You have the best drainage with this type of gardening. This is of immense help if you live in an area where the soil is waterlogged. You will not have to worry about root rot. You can bid goodbye to gophers or any other burrowing pests as you can "close" the bottom of your raised garden with wire mesh (like you use in chicken coops) to prevent any pest from burrowing into your garden from underneath.
