The following information is provided to help you prepare your garden.
Planning a Garden
It is a good idea to spade (mix) the soil to a depth of 12 to 14 inches. Adding organic matter such as manure, peat moss, or leaves will benefit the soil.
The simplest way to eliminate plant pests is to remove insects, worms, or eggs by hand. Some shake-on powder or liquid bug sprays are relatively safe to use.
Proper depth for planting seeds is approximately four times as deep as the seed is thick.
