- A kitchen garden will ideally receive at least 6 hours a day of sunlight. Ideally, the garden will have a slight slope to the south so that sunlight is optimally utilised!
- Make sure the soil is nutritious. Sand or clay is great to start planting and by adding compost you can really make the most of your vegetable garden.
- Choose the right time to sow. It’s best to sow around March / April but be sure to keep an eye on the weather forecast.
- Don’t dig the seeds too deep in the ground! If you do so, the probability of rot will be greater. The general rule is: plant the seed the same distance into the ground as the width of the seed. For example, a seed with a width of 3 mm, should be sown three mm under the ground.
