Many of us like the convenience of shopping online. Those of us who like to navigate a keyboard and a mouse rather than an automobile may find online shops to be more appealing than traditional brick and mortar stores that require travel and time away from the beloved computer. You can create a hydroponics supply stock with just a few clicks of your mouse.
Organic pest control methods can be successful and the ingredients for many of the recipes can be found in kitchen cupboards. If chemical sprays are really necessary, try and find the least-toxic. These include insecticidal soaps, horticultural oils, dehydrating dusts, etc.
A hydroponics growing system is held in favor by many horticulturists because this type of growing yields so many crops. There is a growing interest in gardening with this type of system as the crop will outperform the traditional garden by an average of three-hundred percent. This popular movement is appropriate for nearly every kind of plant imaginable.
Why Use a Soil Moisture Meter? Soil Moisture Meters measure the moisture content in the soil. Some devices use infrared (IR), radio frequency (RF), or microwave techniques to evaporate water from a sample. Others resolve moisture content by measuring a material’s conductance, resistance, or even the capacitance and calculating a corresponding moisture value. Variables measured [...]
Soil stabilization broadly refers to any chemical or mechanical treatment given to a mass of soil to improve or maintain its engineering properties. Soil stabilization (or soil enrichment/soil care) as we like to call it finds many purposes from strengthening the existing soil to dust control and waterproofing.
You’ll have a real advantage at giving each plant its ideal home when you know the pH levels of the soil. Different vegetables, fruits, flowers and plants thrive in different pH levels. Now you can easily determine what’s best to plant where with this easy to ready digital meter. It reads results from 3.5 to 9.0 and includes a plant pH preference list.
The Soil pH Meter gives an indication of the alkalinity or acidity of soil. Soil pH is based on the activity of hydrogen ions in a water or saline solution, which determines the measurement of its pH. When in balance (pH 7) the soil is said to be neutral. The pH scale ranges from o [...]
Plants need to breathe. Their roots need air. Clean and frequent cultivation will not only break the soil up mechanically, but let in air, moisture and heat. There is another thing to be considered in making each vegetable do its best, and that is crop rotation, or the following of any vegetable with a different sort at the next planting. You will learn about these things in this article.
