Garden care

The home garden is, in addition to an incredible place in which to carry out many activities other than the usual daily routine, a «means» to get involved, to create a healthy and very fun and exciting hobby, to download physical and mental stress and at the same time to stay in touch with nature, which has an admittedly positive effect on our faculties, especially mental ones. In short, a close relationship is established between the garden and the person who lives and cares for it, because it is an exchange of attention, where we do our part by taking care of the smallest details of the place we love, and it reciprocates by offering us a place at all times ( the garden itself) where you can relax and get away from the daily stress, dictated by the very high rhythms of life we ​​lead. But the care of the garden also needs a basic technique, because you cannot approach the care of plants and flowers without having ever seen them; Fortunately, the internet provides us with many features, including our site which tries to offer valid and simple suggestions to “make your garden work”, making you passionate about it as we are for our work.

Fertilization


Fertilization is a fundamental step for the correct care of the garden; it is clearly following having materially planted the plant or having made it grow from a seed bought or procured, but it is very important because it serves to integrate the nutrients contained in the soil and «lost» because used intensively by other crops or decayed by a certain time of neglect. In this sense, fertilization can also be prior to having grown the plant, because before planting it or burying the seed it could be an excellent idea to prepare the soil well to accommodate the specific plant species, providing it with precisely those substances. nutrients that it requires. This evidently derives from the fact that every plant needs a basic system of nutritional elements, plus some specific substances which may vary and which are lacking if the soil has received only one species of plant for a continuous time. In fact, in nature there is a sort of «turnover», due to the passage of animals and insects with their excrements (real natural fertilizers), the growth of spontaneous plants and many other mechanisms that allow nature to develop everywhere; in our garden this is prevented due to the small size and also because of our control, on the entry of animals for example. growth of spontaneous plants and many other mechanisms that allow nature to develop everywhere; in our garden this is prevented due to the small size and also because of our control, on the entry of animals for example. growth of spontaneous plants and many other mechanisms that allow nature to develop everywhere; in our garden this is prevented due to the small size and also because of our control, on the entry of animals for example.

Foliar fertilizers

There are many types of fertilizer on the market, just think that there are specific ones for all the most known and widespread plants; a first classification can be made clearly on the basis of artificial fertilizers (therefore produced by man in the factory chemically) or to natural fertilizers, which are often always produced by man but only because it recreates the basic conditions to favor the development of some natural processes that form fertilizers, as in the case of compost. Among the natural fertilizers there are the foliar ones: the leaves are a very important part of every plant, mainly the site of chlorophyll photosynthesis, but also a form of shelter for flowers or fruits, and many other functions necessary for the plant; in general, very important nutrients for the plant also accumulate in the leaves, therefore by macerating and shredding a large quantity of different leaves and then collecting what derives from it, it is possible to produce excellent natural fertilizers, cheap but above all very efficient from the point of view of plant nutrition in general. Usually this kind of products are difficult to produce at home independently, because an enormous quantity of leaves is needed and also some specialized tools with which to shred and accumulate the leaves.

Composting and leaves

We mentioned the term compost in the second paragraph; it is a natural fertilizer that derives from an induced fermentation of natural products deriving from our kitchen or from our garden. We focus first of all on the word «induced», because it means that man does not intervene in the natural fermentation process or in the first person and nor by adding anything artificial, but does so only by recreating the conditions suitable for making natural processes such as fermentation: we refer to the degree of humidity, the temperature, the aeration of the accumulation of waste that will turn into compost. This technique is called composting, and it is very useful to do because it is enough to combine the scraps of our kitchen (untreated,
