Living mulch

Wednesday 11 May 2011

You can grow your own fertilizer with living mulches. Living plants used as mulches have an advantage over dead mulches, such as straw and hay. They affect soils both above and below the ground. They grow with and around main crops and are usually green, succulent, and full of nutrients, with a well-developed root system. This root system works its way into the earth, opens up the soil, and feeds the soil food web all season long if living mulches are managed properly.

Microclimates

Observing natural microclimates and creating microclimates
Monday 14 February 2011

A microclimate is an area that due to its situation in the landscape may be warmer or colder, drier or wetter than the rest of the property. It is a play of the elements: air, sun, water, earth and space. By learning the theory behind microclimates, observing natural microclimates and creating microclimates, you can grow plants that are normally tender in your area and place plants in areas of the garden that are best adapted to their needs. Microclimate theory is equally useful when planning forest gardens.
