Step-by-Step Organic Gardening

You can use this detailed organic gardening guide to get started:

Preparing the bed:

This should start three weeks prior to your plans of starting the garden. The soil should be all cleaned up and freed of unwanted growths and weeds. Letting the clean soil sit for another week shows up the hidden weeds which can then be easily pulled out. Once all set, you can add a layer of compost.

Furrows

Digging rows or grids allows a systematic space that can be used for planting a variety of vegetables and grains. Furrows also make it easier to water and clean the plants. In case you are using pots or planters, you can consider other ways of making sections instead of digging any furrows.

Watering:

You should moisten the soil before planting any seeds so that there is no chance of the seeds being washed away. Moist and healthy soil makes the rest of the work much easier.

Sowing

You should plant the seeds as per the instructions given on every individual seed packet, maintaining the right gap between different plantings otherwise they can clash and eat into each other leading to stunted plant growth as the roots start to spread and fight for nutrition.

Soil cover

Seeds should be buried only as deep as they are big. You should remember this rule when you start covering them with the layer of soil. The idea is to allow them to be in touch with the right amount of soil and air so that they can grow properly. For some plants, just sprinkling a little soil would also be sufficient.

Maintaining moisture: Once you are done with the initial stages of the gardening, you will have to maintain it too. For the first few days and even weeks, your garden would need extra care and attention. You should avoid overwatering it and not allow it to dry out completely either. Sprinkling little water twice or thrice during a day is the ideal way to go.
