What to plant in October in the garden? We tells you!


Remove non-productive crops

Probably in October are few crops still give plants, so it was worth releasing the terracing and the pots, and prepare them for transplantation autumn crop. Before the transplant is essential to maintain crop rotations, ie, alternating different crops on the same plot over time, so they have to spend many years to plant a crop again in the same area.

In this way, you can also use more nutrients and prevent the spread of pests. An example: after culture Solanaceae or Cucurbitaceae, it is advisable to plant leaf crops such as chicory, lettuce, and spinach, among others. Now, after leaf cultivation, planting should root vegetables such as leeks, turnips, garlic, and onions.

This cleaning can also be applied to a garden of aromatic plants, removing those annual cycle, to make room for new plants, once you’ve added more compost.
