  • It quickly warms up, so we can plant early spring.
  • You need frequent tillage because the soil quickly becomes compact.
  • It holds bad water, so you need to water it often and in small quantities, in the summer instead of the ground should also be mulched.
  • We fertilize several times with small amounts because the losses are minor.
  • For fertilization are suitable organic substances (made homemade), the manure instead be added in small quantities, because it decomposes too slowly.
  • We plant the plants for green manure.

Clay:

  • As spring warms up late, so it’s easier trapiantarvi the hedgerow planting seeds.
  • Autumn is dug during the winter because the lumps decompose.
  • Regular use of manure is desired; we avoid only in flower beds where they will bulb vegetables in legumes.
  • When the rain falls, it is crucial to the plowing of the earth, because the roots will start to rot.
  • If the soil is acidic, it is recommended to add lime or quartz sand.
  • The plowing of the earth is required regular hoeing, bury the vegetable mass, and fertilization with organic substance (composed of the house).

  • The land does not need frequent fertilization. We have to maintain a good condition of the earth.
  • We do not overdo it with manure and fertilize with organic matter (composed of the house).
  • In summer, it is advisable to mulch the soil.

For good plant growth, it requires a fertile land and light, full of life (earthworms, microorganisms …). So it has access to air, water, and nutrients. The soil in nature is never naked, so we provide to Caccamo or covering plants, as well as the renewal of nutrients – with compost, manure, or other natural preparations.
