After completing your soil and pH tests, prepare the soil by adding substances that may be helpful in helping plants grow. Add organic ingredients. In addition to products such as organic fertilizers and animal fertilizers, you can also use decomposed leaves.
You can also use fertilizer for nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium supplements. There is information on how much of these metals are on the fertilizer bag. For example, numbers 6-10-6 say that the fertilizer contains 6% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus and 5% potassium. If your soil is alkaline (greater than pH 7) after the pH test, you can add wood ash or lime to neutralize. If your soil is acidic (less than pH 7), you can add moss and leaves.
Research your region:
Find out about the growing conditions of your region. You can get information online or through a garden consultant.
Find out if the frost time will start and end. Planting too early or too late can cause the death of seeds and plants. Research your time well.
Find out about local weather changes and transitions and their frequency. Look for the best time to harvest your fruits and vegetables. Some plants start the season early, while others may not need to be planted until summer.
