Ms. Giau shared: “I would like to write a few suggestions for those of you who have been and want to own a small garden like that!
– About the planting rig: You measure and design according to your own preferences, then just go and buy materials to assemble.
– Planting bins: I use two types of containers, 200l solid plastic and 70l HS019, to grow long-term fruit trees, besides using plastic pots with a capacity of about 15 liters to grow cantaloupe, melons and melons. and tomatoes..
– You should not drill holes in the bottom, but should drill on the side of the barrel, about 5cm from the bottom to retain a certain amount of water for the plants to use when it is sunny and limit the washing of fertilizer when it rains!
– Soil: I use nutrient-rich clean soil, mix it with rice husk ash, coir and peanut shells to make it loose in the ratio of 6-4 or 7-3, then mix a little vermicom , lime powder and antagonistic fungus Tricodema and then incubated for 7-10 days can be planted.
– Fertilizers: I use organic-based fertilizers such as synthetic pellets, vermicompost, fish manure and some self-composting fertilizers to help fertile soil and keep plants nutritious. Nutrients for healthy growth and high yield.
