What vegies need
THE 4 ESSENTIALS Sun
Almost all vegies need plenty of sun. At least six hours each day is recommended, but more is better.
The better the soil, the better the result. It should be dark, crumbly and rich in rotted organic matter (think compost and cow manure).
Consistent moisture is the key to success, but the soil should not be soggy. On hot days, don’t let vegetable plants wilt, as their quality declines.
Visit your crops for some time each day. Feel the soil for moisture and pull small weeds straight away. Check over and under leaves for pests and squash any you find.
