What are Herbs and Vegetables?
Herbs have many uses. They can be decorative, medicinal, culinary, cosmetic and aromatic. Herbs are a great addition to many recipes and smell wonderful while they grow or dried. A vegetable is a plant or part of a plant that is used as food. There are many different kinds of vegetables. Root vegetables include carrots and potatoes. Fruits and vegetables are very similar, a fruit being the part of a plant that has developed from a flower. Whatever the name, growing food helps lower your grocery bills!
Planting Note: We also recommend that you follow companion planting practices, please see our blog post about these practices to get the full potential out of your vegetable garden.
- Make sure you till the soil to aerate and loosen it up; if it's more clay like add Canadian Peat Moss to help break up the clay.
- Recommend using a Canadian based planting soil like Complete Planting Mix or adding a manure like Miracle Grow Manure to add more nutrients in soil (especially if its an area you have planted in before).
- Follow labeled instructions for spacing information.
- After planting fertilize with Espoma Garden Tone or Tomato Tone every 2 weeks and water thoroughly.
