Gardening God’s Way

The following are steps you need to consider in order to create a good garden:

Be aware of the season

Be aware of your soil type

Area and land …Where? Location?

Be aware of the diseases in the garden and insects before you treat.

Sun or shade is vital knowledge

Water availability? Rainfall

Compost – you can make it

Gather or buy manure

What labour is available? How much time do you have to spend in the garden?

Establish what your plant needs (before you plant)

Go organic

Good compost = manure, organic matter, waste from the kitchen. Cover to maintain heat, using plastic or canvas cover, water once every week and use as mulch. Never put on plant but on root ball, around the plant.

Walk in the garden and smell the roses.

Benefits of good gardening include:

The pleasure we have of enjoying the garden

You can plant vegetables/herbs in your flower garden, you do not need to have a special place for them

You can plant fruit bearing trees in the garden

You can have your garden operating in such an efficient way that you do not have to buy anything like vegetables or fruit

You can grow some of the edible weeds, e.g. black Jack, Runi/nyevhe, mowa etc

The very best you can see in your garden is your own footsteps and your ability to look with a seeing eye eg thirsty/disease
