Just like real estate, one of the most important aspects of organic gardening that you must accomplish is to find the best location for it. Nothing matters more than this. This determines the future of your plant and nothing else is more important than this, even the soil quality.
Because first things first: with demanding plants like roses, location and the fluctuations of the weather must be tolerable so as to ensure growth.
To find the prime location for the plant, the gardener must do some extensive research on that specific plant because it has different demands. Some plants prefer a cool weather while others a warm ones. If your area is a bit congested by soot and pollution, find a plant that can persevere amidst all of the pain that it will go through. Find one that suits the requirements inevitably posed by your environment.
With the basic requirements accomplished, then you now have to take into account the accessibility of the garden for both sunlight and your water sprinkler. The location should be open enough so as the plant will get some sunlight for half of the day while near enough so that you can give ample care and protection for it.
Check the Soil
With these things put in place, you must check the soils nutrient base by testing its pH. If its too basic, then it lacks nutrients. If its too acidic however, then you have to be wary still because it might harm your plant more than benefit it. The perfect ph for soil is around five to six.
After that’s done, check for the availability of organic matter around the area. This will reduce the hassles of preparing one for your garden. Just look around and see if there are some compost heaps available from government grass cutters who just leave the snipped grass for them to degrade naturally. Just collect these, put them into a sack and there you have some ready organic matter, with a liter less of sweat.
Like it Business Style?
If you look at the garden as an opportunity to set up a business, then you have to find a place that has considerable traffic, such as a suburb. If you’re fortunate enough to live in one, then you should consider starting up a business.
Make sure that you attract people to your place using a lot of bright colored plants in your garden so as to pique some interest. Soon enough, people will fall in line for your daises, roses or sunflowers. Just remember to adhere to the basic rules of organic gardening while fulfilling the necessities when putting up the business: get a lot of traffic and make them talk about your products. Remember, a small business survives and thrives by merely public relations.
When do you find a place that gets considerable traffic from potential customers, you still have to do some research and see what kinds of plants do they prefer. Look around and see what flowers are they carrying or find ones that are desired but aren’t sold or sold to expensively by flower shops in malls. Survey your target audience and cater to their needs.
The main feature that makes your business better than above the rest is the customers assurance that you have used organic materials. Customers nowadays are speculative of popular flower chains that may have cultivated their flowers using harmful pesticides by the sole reason that production will be a lot quicker.
When you market your products, stress that they are organic so as to let the audience know that you are a sincere flower shop with not only the customers interests in mind, but also the environment and subsequently, our children and the generations that come after them.
Location for your garden really does take a prime spot over anything else not only by the reasons of convenience, but many more. Finding the right place is beneficial for the plants growth and general health, with you studying the degree of sunlight the area gets and the quality of soil its in.
And if you’re planning on doing a business, location to is important because you want some potential customers walking along your yard, admiring your garden and putting a few bills in your cash register.
