Preparing the perfect veggie garden

The first thing that you need to do when building your veggie garden is to consider where it will go. You will need an area that gets lots of sun and does not have to compete with the root systems of large trees and plants for nutrients.Now to prepare the garden bed make sure the bed is free from grass and weeds.Lay newspaper about half an inch thick on the area that will become your vegetable garden. Laying newspaper will keep weeds at bay and slowly break down and feed your vegetables over time. You will need a good quality garden mix to give your vegetables the kick start they need as seedlings.Once you have planted your choice of vegetables, mulching the garden bed will retain moisture in warmer weather, don’t forget to water lightly every second day.
