What to plant in September?

Summer crops need many nutrients, so they tend to impoverish the substrate. It is, therefore, necessary to provide a substrate to crops of good quality, adding vermicompost if once the plant has started, the substrate is in good condition and has not been occupied by the root system. You can also prepare new substrate humus and mixing coir to increase aeration and water retention.

Another good option is to plant green manure on the terraces or grooves where you go to sow demanding crops in spring-summer, to fix nitrogen in the soil to serve as fertilizer for the next crop. However, if you had green beans or other legume planted earlier in the ground need not be planting green manures in the same space, as these have been commissioned to fix nitrogen to the soil as fertilizer.

You are planting root crops in fast terracing or pots as turnips or radishes. You can see also lettuce seedlings. As for flowers, you can sow in seed thoughts, and then transplanted to their final pot or place of the seat. Thoughts, also known as violet or viola, are resistant to cold and give color and joy to your garden.
