Welcome to my website. This website handles the overflow from 'Growing Organic Vegetables'. Both sites help you grow fabulous organic vegetables in a warm temperate climate using water saving methods. Both link to "Gardening with Ecobeds" providing detailed instructions on how to build your own sustainable Garden Ecobed and explaining how to get excellent results............John Ashworth 27th July 2015.
Check out my blogpage which explains how I maintain productivity in my Ecobeds. It describes
how soil is prepared prior to planting, the importance of rainwater in
Ecobeds, how to regulate the sun's intensity and how to feed plants
through their leaves.
Check out my blogpage which tells you when to sow seeds.
Multi-sow 12 chickpeas in 6 seed tray cells in an EcoPropagator, and when they reach 4th leaf, plant them out in a prepared Ecobed. Grow them in a single row 250mm apart, and water them in well with dilute seaweed extract
Cover the soil with fresh mulch as soon as
the chickpeas are established.
Harvesting and storage
Harvest the chickpeas as soon as their pods dry out and extract the seeds.
Use a pair of scissors to snip the pods off the bush to avoid damaging it.
Store the dry seeds in sealed containers until required.
Organic Pest Control.

garden. My blog on "Controlling Garden Pests" explains a
little about these pests and what to do to protect plants from them. For details click on the appropriate link below.
