The soil used for growing vegetables must have a soil with good drainage and water retention and good ventilation. The water and fresh air can infiltrated immediately when watered. The excess water can easily drawn to the ground, and when touched by the hand it will have a soft touch.
The soil will dry easily and will not lock the fertilizer if it is drained excessively. Conversely, soil that cannot drained at any time can cause difficulty in breathing for the roots and delay the plant growth. Therefore, it is most important to choose good soil to grow your vegetables.
Self-provisioned Culture Soil or Market-sold
Whether you are planting containers for growing vegetables or cultivating land, you need to choose the soil that matches the vegetables. Almost all of the cultivated soil sold on the market includes base fertilizer. You can use market-sold soil to create your own deployment too.
Depending on the nature of the plants, you can change the ratio of soil. To increase drainage and ventilation, you can add perlite. Or you can use meteorites to improve ventilation and water conservation.
Time needed: 15 minutes.
