Vegetable Growing In Florida


Your first consideration when planting a vegetable garden is location, location, location. This will be driven by the quantity and variety of vegetables you wish to grow. The most important factor is exposure. You must ensure that your garden will receive at least 6 hours of full sunlight per day to ensure a productive garden. Decide in advance which part of your property receives the most sun. Plan how to landscape the rest of the area around this spot. Dress up your vegetable patch with flowers adding splashes of color. Add a chain-link type fence, or get creative with wood pieces to certain areas of your bed allowing creeping vegetables or vines to grow along.

Start by growing vegetables used in your household. Decide on how many plants you will need of each type to produce a sufficient crop during a season. Your vegetable garden will grow much better if you sit down and sketch out a plan for garden. Make sure the area you select has easy access to water and is far enough away from trees to avaoid problems with roots. If this is your fist time, limit yourself to a small space. A compact, well-maintained vegetable garden will be much more rewarding than an area that is too large and hard to maintain.
