Organic Garden Tips
By Frank Finger
February is still a cold month in the north so keep reading and
planning for that spring garden. Be sure to order seed catalogs
early so you can get your order on time. There is a wealth of information
on the web and the web is also a good place to order from. Try
a couple of different things this year. If tomatoes are your thing,
pick a new disease free variety. Companion planting is a well worthwhile
program to use.
Southern Regions: In the far southern regions,
it’s time to plant Kale, Lettuce, Mustard, Peas, Radish,
Beets, Broccoli, Cabbage, Carrots, Cauliflower, Collards, Onion,
Potatoes, and Strawberries. Don’t forget to apply Bradfield
Organics® Natural Veggie fertilizer before and during planting.
Follow directions on the bag for best results.
Northern regions: Just stay by the fire and keep
Indoors: Your houseplants should continue to
do well by using the Bradfield Organics® Luscious Lawn & Garden™
3-1-5 on a monthly basis. Be sure to check the label for directions
different size plants. Do not over-water. Put your little pinky
in the pot to check the moisture. Over-watering is worse than under-watering.
If the leaves are dusty, wash them off with a soft cloth saturated
with milk or mild alcohol mix.
February is usually a very cold month everywhere. It’s a
good time to order those seeds for starting next month.
