How to start a vegetable garden step by step

First things first

The first step is to check that the location you are thinking of planting your garden provides all the necessary conditions. Direct sunlight is the most important but you must also insure that the spot is not exposed to strong winds. It’s always a good idea, therefore, to try and create some sort of shelter from the wind if needs be.

Once you found the ideal spot to install your vegetable garden then the next step is to start thinking about what you are going to grow your vegetables in. Important things you should consider when choosing the equipment is the space required for each plant and the depth of soil. For vegetables you need at least 15cm between each plant and a soil depth of 25 cm. That means that normal planting pots are not the best option for it and you should look for a nice growbed. Yes! Something like the Noocity Growbed!


A balanced diet for your veggies 

After you’ve got the right equipment together the next step of the how to start a vegetable guide, is potting soil. There are several solutions available but be sure to look for a potting soil suitable for vegetables certified for organic farming – this way you can be certain that no chemicals will be present in it. We suggest you use a dehydrated coco fiber mix with vermicompost, or only the coco fiber if you are familiar with using liquid fertilizers to feed plants. If this is confusing you a little as always feel free to drop us a message and we will be more than happy to help you out.


Time to get your hands dirty 

Now it’s time to get all your plants and tools together and get growing! Remember with a Growbed you won’t require any heavy equipment just a small spade, a rake and some gloves for those who only want to get their hands dirty figuratively.

All the rest is fun and letting your curiosity discover the wonderful world of the vegetable garden.
