Seven Ways To Give Your Veg Garden A Lift

Soil Preparation

Start by conducting a soil test to determine its pH and nutrient levels. Adjust the pH as needed to create an optimal environment for your vegetables.

Crop Rotation

Avoid planting the same vegetable family in the same spot year after year to reduce the risk of soil-borne diseases and pest infestations.

Avoid overcrowding

Give your vegetables sufficient space to grow without competing for nutrients, sunlight, and water.

Watering Techniques

Provide a consistent and deep watering schedule to ensure even moisture levels in the soil. Use a soaker hose or drip irrigation to minimize water waste.

Disease Management

Keep a watchful eye on your garden for signs of pests and diseases. Early detection and intervention can prevent problems from spreading.


Apply the appropriate fertilizer based on soil test results and the needs of specific vegetables. Choose organic options when possible for slow-release nutrients.

Companion Planting

Plant companion vegetables and herbs that can help deter pests or improve the growth of neighboring plants.
