To maximize your enjoyment out of your garden plant a variety of marijuana plants. The same old will get full and boring and you may out of boredom end up neglecting your garden. By planting a variety you will ensure that you remain interested and as a bonus it will be far prettier. If you want to have a more productive garden, expand your growing season into the fall by using row covers. Row covers keep heat in, frost out, and also protect against deer intrusion. The crops under the row covers should still be somewhat resistant to cold however, so it is best to choose greens and root vegetables. Keep in mind that that new strains are always appearing on the market. It's best to check with marijuana blogs and pot media on a regular basis so you will always know what's out there.
Stick With What Works For You
Find the crops that grow well in your local climate and the soil in your garden. If you try to force a marijuana plant that doesn't like your weather, you'll end up putting out a lot of work for very little result. What grows well one year will probably grow well next year too, so plant it again. Pay attention to the compatibility of your marijuana plants. You can plant tall plants, such as sativa variety, and use them to shade such sun-sensitive plants. These combinations can reduce the amount of fertile space your garden requires while also increasing the yield of all the types of plants you have.
After planting your pot, maintaining it is still a work in progress. Throughout the growing season, it is a must for a grower to continue to prune, pick or deadhead blooms. Gardening can be physically exhausting with hauling dirt and digging holes, but at the end of the day, your hard work is paid off by seeing the beautiful marijuana flower buds that you have created. Begin your marijuana garden with healthy soil as a first defense against pests. If you are producing healthy plants they will be stronger and better able to resist bugs and diseases. To give your marijuana garden the best chance of yielding the healthiest quality buds, start with a high quality soil that has fewer chemicals which over time will accumulate salts.
Select Different Varieties To Work With
Brighten up your marijuana flower beds with both sativa and indica varieties. Fast-growing sativas and indicas can brighten up the variety of your flower and gives you more choice. Before you even start planting your marijuana garden, check the soil. For a small fee a soil analysis can be obtained - based on that report - the soil can be properly enriched to support a vibrant garden. Take the time to know your soil. Get it analyzed. This will let you know what is in your soil and in what areas the soil may be deficient. You can then buy the missing nutrients to add into your soil which will help maximize both your sativa and indica crops.
If you want something fun to do that will benefit you in the kitchen, try growing some herb in your window. Some pot plants may not take kindly to this, but many will! In this way you have some herb always fresh and handy. A key element to having a great marijuana garden is to fertilize it. There are many different types of fertilizers available at most home stores, but what works for different types of gardens varies. Manure is a great choice, but it does smell. A commercially produced manure will have no pathogens to contaminate the vegetables in the garden. Some people swear by chemical fertilizers, yet they are not an organic way to grow. If you have pot plants that are tall, support them with stakes. This will prevent tall plants from drooping over when they are heavy with blooms, which can look very messy. Support climbing shrubs with a lattice to keep the rambling vines under control and to prevent them from invading another plant area.
