The place

Choosing tips the vegetable seeds are good for you including seeds more resistant to pests and diseases, have a high production potential, do not enter the expiration period from seeds to be selectedIf you have questions, you can visit here again and ask it to me, and you also could recommend to me to make a guide planting vegetables you want to plant, because the type of vegetables very much, so I would be happy to accept recommendation from you. Later I will help you to make vegetable planting guide will you plant.

Planting medium and supporting equipment
I've never written about supporting equipment as supporting for your gardening activities, so you can see my writing about gardening tools list that can you know, if you live in urban areas and have limited land you have, then you can add containers, pots, polybags, waste buckets, or whatever they can maximize to be prepared in the list of support tools for your gardening activities. While the planting medium you need to prepare for organic gardening is soil, organic fertilizer, sand, husk charcoal (biochar). For more details, such as the following reviews:
  • Prepare the soil and adjust how many plants you'll plant, soil either one of them is the humus soil, but for me you do not need to fuss and hard to find humus soil if your place is not available, you can use a good soil and uncontaminated by chemicals, for me it was enough.
  • Organic fertilizer, organic fertilizer use becomes compulsory for you because you will organic vegetable gardening, so the nutritional needs of plants can be fulfilled with the use of organic fertilizer.
  • Husk charcoal (biochar) is best used as a mixture for the growing medium, because a lot of benefits that you get if using husk charcoal (biochar) as planting media, the benefits husk charcoal (biochar), among others, have a good ability to retain water, can spur the growth of microorganisms that are good for your plants, fertilize the soil (growing media), increase crops, and many more benefits that can be achieved by mixing husk charcoal (biochar) to the growing media that you will use.

After you know the ingredients that you will use for the planting medium, then you can try some variations mixing a good planting medium. here are some examples of comparisons of growing media that you can use for your organic vegetable plants.
  • Soil : organic fertilizer : rice husk with a ratio of 1 : 1 : 1
  • Soil : organic fertilizer : husk charcoal : sand in the ratio 1 : 1 : ½ : ½
  • Soil : organic fertilizer : sand in the ratio 1 : : ½
  • Soil : organic fertilizer with a ratio of 1 :
You just select which comparisons are going to use, actually there are other great ingredients to use, but the price a little expensive if you buy them, such as cocopeat, vermicompost, organic fertilizer made from bat droppings. So I can not recommend you to use a material planting medium is a little expensive. Okay hopefully reached here you've got it, then we discuss the next point.

Plants nurseries and planting
How to plant nurseries actually almost the same with other vegetable crops, you can directly sow, or you create in advance seed until the plants are ready for planting on larger media. For seed germination age also averaged together, so you can create seeds from plant seeds will you plant in the following way:

  • The seeds have started to germinate usually starts on day 5, you can move the seedlings to the planting medium is slightly larger when plants are germinating perfectly, or leaves are already open properly.
  • At the time the plant has leaves at least 6 strands, then the seed is ready to move to a place or a larger planting medium.

  • Solid organic fertilizer, solid organic fertilizer can make your own with any ingredient that is the most important ingredient you use is an organic material or easily decomposed by microbial activity, if you have never made their own organic fertilizer, then you can read how to make organic fertilizer itself from me.

Treatment plants can you start after sowing, the first one you can do is keep the planting medium do not let dry and should not be flooded (too much water). You can flush every morning and flush with a portion slightly in the afternoon, and if moment you move the seedlings into containers and not many roots are damaged, usually on day 2 of tomato plants have started a fresh look to grow. And the next steps for the care I split 4 points as shown below.


1. Organic tomatoes  plant fertilization
Its outlines of tomato plants has 2 growth phases, namely the phase of vegetative and generative phase. Vegetative phase tomato plants are more focused on the formation of roots, new shoots, and stems. So for this phase of tomato plants require more nutrients dominant N (nitrogen), P element enough, elements of K bit. If the plant looks less than the maximum at 12 days, then you can add organic fertilizer back (could use solid organic fertilizer or use a liquid organic fertilizer), and should be noted for those of you that can not be be a standard that falid, because in gardening activities theory sometimes different from the practice, so you have to adjust the existing plants in the house
But for supplementary fertilizer can be provide when the tomato plant aged 15 and 30 days after planting. Furthermore generative phase, at this phase of tomato plants to focus more on flowering, fruiting, and enlargement of the fruit, but the tomato plants are still growing with new shoots. For fertilizing, you can use organic fertilizers dominant with nutrition K, you can obtain from coconut husk or cocopeat, or you can make your own liquid organic fertilizer made from coconut husks, or cocopeat, which you can later use everything is in compliance with nutrition K for your tomatoes plants, for more details please read how to make liquid organic fertilizer made from coconut husks, or cocopeatYou can give at age 45, 60, 75, when at the age of 80 days the tomatoes still grow well and produce, then you need to give supplementary fertilizer again at the age of 85 days.
