Basics of Planting
August 16 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Have you ever wondered what kind of plants grow well with each other? Or perhaps how much space the roots of a plant requires? Maybe your Aloe Vera isn’t doing well in one pot but thrives in another in the same balcony, and you just can’t guess the reason.
Each living organism lives in a symbiotic relationship with the other – plants, insects, animals, grasses, sub-soil microbes, subterranean fungi.
The Basics of Planting workshop with Edible Routes is an opportunity to learn all about growth cycle and characteristics of plants. This session is for you if you want to start a kitchen garden or make it more lush and happy or simply want some expert tips about growing plants.
Focus of the workshop:
– Garden positioning/location
– Containers to start with
– Potting mix or existing soil improvements
– Understanding soil structure
– Plant and root characteristics – optimal use of space
– Seed sowing (direct or transplanting)
– Companion planting
– Seasonal planting
This is the third session of the 5-part series: “My Edible Kitchen”. Through this series, you will delve into individual aspects of kitchen garden maintenance and build a strong connection to your plants. Click here to know more: http://https://rzp.io/l/My-Edible-Kitchen-Garden
