Prepare your garden for fall

loader

The seasonal changes are a determining factor in the growth and harvest in your garden.

The intensity of light, humidity of the environment and the temperature can be a beneficial factor or not, according to the plantations you have. That is why when starting your garden it is important that you plan by season, with rotation and association of crops.

In autumn, for example, the temperature drops and therefore the presence of insects decreases; however, abundant and atypical rains can favor the appearance of fungi. That is why one of the first factors to consider in this season for the care of your garden is to reinforce the plants with natural fungicides, so autumn is an ideal time to place slow release fertilizers such as humus or compost.

In this season we recommend you germinate and sow:

ESTATE: Carrot, onion, radish, beetroot.

FLOWERS: Calendula, broccoli, cauliflower.

LEAVES: Lettuce, celery, spinach, coriander, parsley, chard, kale.

FRUITS: Strawberry, kidney bean, green bean, broad beans.

Here we share some references about the care of some of these plants:
